Prosecuters Take a Second Look at Salt Lake City Gay Beating Case

“Salt Lake County prosecutors are taking another look at the case of two gay men who were severely beaten after one of them, David James Bell, allegedly kidnapped a neighbor’s children. In August, prosecutors cited a lack of evidence and declined to file assault or burglary charges against the suspects in the attack, who are related to the children. But now, attorneys are again reviewing the beating, particularly the alleged attack on Bell’s boyfriend, Dan Fair. Prosecutors are now reviewing the case “under different theory,” said Deputy District Attorney Alicia Cook. She said no new facts have come to light.” [Salt Lake Tribune]
