Assault charge dropped in boy's fatal beating

Assault charge dropped against fianc e of Mass. man charged with his son's fatal beating By The Associated Press

WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) ' A Massachusetts judge has dismissed assault charges against the fianc e of a man accused of fatally beating his 7-year-old son on Father's Day 2009.

The judge said there was insufficient evidence to pursue assault charges against 31-year-old Tiffany Hyman, who still awaits trial on charges of reckless endangerment and being an accessory after the fact.

Prosecutors say Hyman failed to intervene when Leslie Schuler allegedly inflicted a fatal beating on his 7-year-old son on June 23, 2009. The boy, Nathaniel Turner, had come to Massachusetts from his home in Eufaula, Ala., about a month earlier to spend the summer with his father.



The Telegram & Gazette of Worcester reports (http://bit.ly/A2j5Av ) a judge has approved an attorney's request for separate trials for Hyman and Schuler. No trial dates have been set.
