A Newport City man has admitted to severely beating a man in his community.
David Fletcher, 21, pleaded guilty Wednesday to charges of burglary, aggravated assault and simple assault.
Authorities say Fletcher and two other men, Donald Cross and Peter Cirone, beat 51-year-old Mark Perron back in June over a grudge, causing traumatic brain injury. Perron had 14 bullets from a pellet gun lodged in his skull and was unrecognizable.
The Newport Daily Express reports Fletcher agreed to cooperate to convict his alleged accomplices and will spend up to 10 years in prison.
