PITTSBURGH (AP) — Two men imprisoned for beating a woman 15 years ago have been ordered to stand trial on homicide charges now that she has died, allegedly from the old wounds.

Shawn Sadik, 35, and Stevenson Rose, 43, are serving 15- to 30-year prison sentences for the beating of Mary Mitchell.

Mitchell was brain-damaged, bedridden and incapable of feeding herself when she died in September at a Pittsburgh-area nursing home.

Allegheny County Medical Examiner Karl Williams testified at a preliminary hearing on Friday that the 50-year-old woman died from long-term problems caused by head injuries she suffered in the July 1993 beating in Larimer.
