Hagerstown Boy Dies After Alleged Beating

July 6th, 2015 by WCBC Radio

A 9 year old boy from Hagerstown deid Sunday from injuries sustained after he was allegedly beaten unconscious for taking a piece of birthday cake.

Jack Kirby Garcia had been in critical condition at Children's National Medical Center in Washington, DC.  Garcia had a birthday on June 27th, and police say he was handcuffed by a relative when he took a piece of cake.  Robert Leroy Wilson is said to have assaulted the youngster at that point. 

Wilson was being held in lieu of $1 million bond after being initially charged with first degree child abuse resulting in severe physical injury, first and second degree assault, and reckless endangerment.

Hagerstown police were to meet with the Washington County State's Attorney's office today to determine what additional charges would be filed in the case.
