A 57-year-old Macon man, who had been knocked to the ground and kicked in the head April 4, died early Saturday at The Medical Center of Central Georgia, said Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones.
Harold Greene, who lived at the Dempsey Apartments at 523 Cherry St., was found unconscious that Thursday afternoon on Poplar Street at Second Street Lane.
Greene was taken off life support and died at 1:30 a.m. Saturday, Jones said.
He was beat up bad, Jones said.
Lonnie Floyd Layson, 59 of Quail Run Road in Lizella, remains in the Bibb County Law Enforcement Center where he was charged with aggravated assault shortly after the beating.
Authorities are expected to upgrade those charges following Greenes death.
