A Maryland man is facing up to 10 years behind bars after pleading guilty to manslaughter charges in the cowardly beating death of a dad who was killed defending his son from a mob of school bullies.
Trevor Garrett Taylor, 26, admitted that he attacked and killed concerned father Christopher Wright on May 19 when a rowdy mob showed up at Wright’s home looking for his 14-year-old son following a schoolyard brawl, the Baltimore Banner said in a report.
Wright, 43, suffered a traumatic brain injury when his head slammed into the pavement.
He was rushed to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he died the following night, authorities said.
“Just looking at the damage that was done to him, that wasn’t just punching that did that,” his fiancee, Tracy Karopchinsky, who witnessed the assault with the dead man’s kids, told reporters after the incident.
“I mean, he’d had a seizure,” Karopchinsky said. “It was done. There was nothing that the hospital could do.”
