(Reading) -- No homicide charges will be filed against four suspects in the death of a homeless man beaten inside a self-service laundry in Reading.
Berks County District Attorney John Adams says he will instead pursue aggravated assault charges against the four suspects in the January 11 attack on 49-year-old Robert Mohler, which was captured on surveillance video.
Mohler was treated for head and internal injuries after he was repeatedly punched and kicked inside the Penn Street Laundromat, where he had been sleeping with the owner's permission.
Shortly after his release from Reading Hospital, Mohler was found dead.
The county coroner has said the death stemmed from a head injury in the assault, but Adams says another forensic pathologist was unable to determine the cause of death.
