2 suspects in Giants beating case due in court



LOS ANGELES (AP) — The two suspects accused of brutally beating a San Francisco Giants fan outside Dodger Stadium are due in court to face charges of assault and other counts.

Twenty-nine-year-old Louie Sanchez and 30-year-old Marvin Norwood are scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday morning in a Los Angeles courtroom. A judge is also due to hear requests from their attorneys to reduce their $500,000 bail.

The men have been charged with mayhem, assault, battery and other counts in the beating of Bryan Stow, who suffered devastating brain injuries and remains hospitalized.

Police have portrayed Sanchez as leading the assault on Stow, which came March 31 at the culmination of an alleged rampage through the stadium where Sanchez and Norwood are accused of lashing out randomly at rival Giants fans.
