Man Found Guilty of Beating EWU Student With Baseball Bat
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — One of three suspects in the baseball-bat beating of an Eastern Washington University student has been convicted of attempted murder.
The Spokesman-Review reported Tuesday that John Mellgren was found guilty and will be sentenced in late May.
One of the other suspects, Damian Dunigan, will be tried in June. The third suspect remains at large.
Mellgren and Dunigan are accused of hitting Robert Schreiber multiple times in the head with an aluminum bat in October 2016.
Officials say Schreiber, a member of the university’s track team, suffered severe injuries.
Mellgren’s prison sentence will be between 17 and 22 years.
