Toledo Teens to Face Upgraded Charges

(Toledo, OH) New criminal charges could be filed as early as today against four Toledo teens accused of throwing a sandbag on to a car along I-75.

Police say upgraded charges are imminent after 22-year-old Marquise Byrd died of his injuries this past weekend. Byrd was critically injured last week when the 13- and 14-year-old boys heaved the sandbag off the Indiana Avenue overpass and onto the vehicle he was riding in. 

The teens have been held in juvenile detention on felonious assault charges since the incident occurred and face Thursday hearings before a juvenile court judge.
