A Worcester man accused of beating his 7-year-old son into a coma on Father's Day is set to be arraigned on a murder charge.
Prosecutors say Leslie Schuler will be arraigned Tuesday afternoon in Central District Court.
He is being held on $250,000 cash bail following his court appearance last week for assault and battery on a child and other charges.
Nathaniel Turner had been living with his grandmother in Eufaula, Ala., until a few weeks ago, when he moved in with his father in Massachusetts.
He was declared brain dead last week and was removed from a
ventilator Saturday at UMass Memorial Medical Center.
Investigators say 36-year-old Schuler allegedly slammed the
boy's head against a wall so hard that it left a dent inside
Schuler's Worcester home.
