Man accused of beating homeless man heading to trial

READING, Pa. - A man charged with beating a homeless man in laundromat in Reading is heading to trial.

All charges against Floyd Patterson were held for court at a preliminary hearing.

Police say Patterson and three others were caught on camera beating a homeless man in the Penn Street Laundromat in January.

The victim died earlier this month, but it's not clear if the attack played a role in his passing.
