Murder Charge Filed Against Man Charged With Beating Toddler in 2002

A man already in prison for beating his girlfriend's four-year-old son in Medina in 2002, is now charged with murder.

The boy, Devante Boston, was in a vegetative state for the rest of his life, and he died in October 2017.

Orleans County prosecutors say Boston died as a result of the injuries from the assault, and defendant David Ricks has been indicted on a second degree murder charge.

Ricks is expected to be arraigned on the new charge later this month.
