Los Angeles, Aug 11 (THAINDIAN NEWS) The two suspects accused of beating a San Francisco Giants fan in March have entered the plea of not guilty. 30-year-old Marvin Norwood and 28-year-old Louie Sanchez were taken to court on criminal.

The two entered their pleas through their lawyers. Curiously the two did not communicate with each other while they were in court. They were charged with battery, mayhem, assault and other criminal charges. The charges stem from the 31st of March attack of Bryan Stow.

According to the police account, the two assaulted the 42-year-old outside the Dodger Stadium. The incident left Stow in the intensive care unit where he is being treated for severe brain damage. His family said he is still in the intensive care unit at the San Francisco hospital.

His health seems to be improving. Stow who is a paramedic is reportedly reacted when his sister kissed him recently.

The prosecution team is counting on an alleged admission that they had from the suspects. A motion by the prosecutors for cameras to be allowed into the courtroom was objected by the defense team. The judge blocked the request.

On the prosecution team’s claim that they have admission from the suspects, Sanchez’s defense lawyer, Gilbert Quinones, said that, “Making assertions and proving them are two different things.”
