(KPLR) – A father who was severely beaten while defending his son last month has died from his injuries. 42-year-old Johnny Gleason was beaten while defending his son outside a bar in May.
The fight started because of an argument over a girlfriend.
Gleason passed away Saturday night at Springfield Memorial Medical Center.
Adam and Aaron Hosford, 24-year-old twin brothers, were arrested for the beating.
They have been charged with two counts of aggravated battery and are both out on bond. No word yet if those charges will be upgraded.
