BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - Levi Clayton, the 96-year-old man badly beaten during a home invasion in Buffalo, has passed away.
Clayton spent months in the hospital with serious injuries, including a broken jaw, after his home was ransacked in November. News 4 learned that Clayton was released and spent some time at home before being re-admitted to the VA Hospital.
News 4 learned Clayton passed away there Tuesday night. It remains unclear if he died as a result of the injuries he received during the attack.
Justice Feggans, 18, is charged in the case. It is possible he could now face manslaughter charges for the death of the WWII veteran.
News 4 legal analyst Terry Connors said, "There would have to be some evidence from a medical examiner or some other medical expert who would indicate the cause of death was the result of the assault.In other words it cannot be from an independent, intervening act that, with some type of an underlying medical condition or something else unrelated to the assault."
Though Feggans is currently the only person charged in the attack, police believe others were involved.
