6 Mass. men plead not guilty to brutal beating at Tim McGraw concert
MANSFIELD, Mass. (AP) ' Six Massachusetts men have pleaded not guilty to felony aggravated assault charges stemming from a brutal beating at a Tim McGraw concert in Mansfield.
Police say 19-year-old Michael Skehill of Westwood was nearly killed Sunday. He's in serious condition but is expected to recover.
A judge in Attleboro on Friday ordered one suspect, 20-year-old Perry DiMascio, held without bail after revoking his bail on an unrelated case. Bail of at least $2,500 was set for the others.
The beating appears to have started over a girl and was exacerbated by alcohol consumption.
The suspects were arrested Thursday and Friday. They include 22-year-old Brendan McCulloch; 21-year-old Michael Adams; 21-year-old Kevin Anderson; 21-year-old Daniel Morizio and 20-year-old Shane Dossantos.
Their attorneys have questioned the reliability of the evidence and witness testimony.
