No charges in 'boredom beating' death

Hamilton County's prosecutor says he will not file any charges in the death of 46-year-old Patrick Mahaney. He's the man several teenagers attacked last year in the so-called 'boredom beating' death in North College Hill.

The announcement follows the County Coroner's ruling that Mahaney died of natural causes and not residual effects of the August 2012 beating.

Five boys pleaded guilty to felonious assault. A sixth is contesting the charges against him. At the time they reportedly said they decided to beat up Mahaney because they had nothing better to do.
