No new charges to be filed in 1995 assault after man diesPosted: Updated:
Spokane County Prosecutor Steve Tucker said yesterday that state law in 1995 prohibited murder or manslaughter charges unless the victim died within three years. The law has since been changed, but the old limit still governs the case in which John Levi Swiger fractured Jeffrey Charles Feagan's skull with a club.
Feagan was in a coma until dying Tuesday.
