There are new and very welcome developments in the case 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 five days from head injuries. Toledo police announce their first arrest and 20-year old Terrance Osley now faces charges of involuntary manslaughter, reports WTOL.
On the night of December 13, one of Woods' friends was involved in a fight at Caesar’s Show Bar. After the crowd was ejected, witnesses say Woods crossed the street and 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. One of the accomplices, 22-year-old Norman Coggins was later apprehended, arraigned on charges of felonious assault and released. Both suspects are due to return to court next week, reports WTVG
Woods had a 10-year domestic partnership and a commitment ceremony in September.
