LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A preliminary hearing date was scheduled Thursday for Jan. 17 for the two men accused of brutally attacking Bryan Stow at Dodger stadium.
Louie Sanchez, 29, and 30-year-old Marvin Norwood are accused of assaulting the San Francisco Giants fan in the parking lot on March 31.
The Rialto neighbors pleaded not guilty to mayhem, assault, battery and other counts back in August.
Attorneys for Dodgers’ owner Frank McCourt filed a civil action against Sanchez and Norwood earlier this year as part of their strategy in defending a $50 million lawsuit filed by Stow’s family.
Stow, whose condition has been improving slowly, spoke for the first time since the attack back in September.
He remains hospitalized with brain damage and other injuries.
