Indian River Beating Suspect Indicted

CANTON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – The Indian River inmate charged with administering a beating to corrections officer David Upshaw has been indicted on felonious assault and escape charges.

19-year-old Demetrice Taylor had already appeared in Massillon Municipal court after the incident that occurred two weeks ago.

The indictment has him in front of a Stark County common pleas judge on Friday.

Taylor was moved to the Stark County jail shortly after investigators say he beat the 60-year-old employee in the head and body.

His bond remained at $100,000.
