Man dies after assault, teens face murder charges

SPOKANE, Wash. - Two 17-year-olds have been charged with Second Degree Murder after a 60-year-old man the pair is accused of beating succumbed to his injuries Wednesday.

Just before 10 p.m. on November 29, police were called to the scene of a fight in an alley near Bridge and Nettleton. When officers arrived, they found Kent Moses unconscious and bleeding.

Court documents say Moses' face was unrecognizable to officers because of blood and swelling and that his upper lip was cut and his dentures were broken.

Moses was transported to Sacred Heart with life threatening injuries where police learned he had also suffered multiple face fractures and three broken ribs.

Following an investigation at the scene of the assault on, police arrested Nicholas Parrish at an apartment on W. Bridge and Justin Summa turned himself in after speaking to officers on the phone.

Parrish admitted that he and Summa had gotten into a fight in the alley and he had stomped on the 'old guy's head.' He told officers that he then blacked out from drinking and did not remember anything else.

Summa admitted to hitting Moses from behind in the ribs and told police officers that his girlfriend was also there during the attack.

When officers interviewed Summa's girlfriend, she said that only Parrish had hit and kicked Moses and that Summa had tried to pull him away. She also said Parrish returned to the scene where he attacked Moses again and went through his pockets.

Parrish later admitted to going back to attack Moses again but denied going through his pockets. He told officers that Summa did attack Moses but was not with him during the second attack.

Parrish was unable to tell officers what sparked the attack, other than he was drunk and mad because he was thrown out of a house where he had been drinking and had become belligerent.
