An update to the tragic holiday murder of Marland Woods, the 32-year-old gay Toledo man who was "kicked and stomped in the head" across the street from a gay bar. Woods was hospitalized and died six days from head injuries. Authorities arrested one man last week and now announce indictments against two men, WTOL reports.
Terrance Osley, 20, and Norman Corggens, 20, were indicted on a charge of involuntary manslaughter. If convicted, each could face up to 10 years in prison. Corggens was arrested on a felonious assault charge shortly after the Dec. 13 attack. He was released on his own recognizance after appearing in Toledo Municipal Court. Osley was arrested Dec. 30. He remains in custody in lieu of $150,000 bond.
On the night of December 13, one of Woods' straight, female friends was involved in a fight at Caesar’s Show Bar. Woods attempted to protect the young woman. After the crowd was ejected, witnesses say Woods crossed the street and was later viciously attacked by a man who "kicked and stomped on his head." Authorities say Osley delivered the fatal beating and he and several accomplices fled in a white Jeep. The Toledo Police Dept. says the vicious beating was "not" a hate crime, but have not confirmed it was related to the fight across the street.
Woods had a 10-year domestic partnership and a commitment ceremony in September
