LEE CO., GA (WALB) -

Prosecutors said the trial for teens charged in a Lee County fighting death will be on the next trial calendar but might still not get reached.

19-year old Aric Cates faces felony charges of aggravated assault and aggravated battery. Four other young suspects were indicted on two misdemeanor counts of simple battery each.

Investigators say the group beat 50-year old Kent Adam and his son, 22-year old James Adam.

The older Adam died later that night.

A preliminary autopsy report shows he died from pre-existing medical conditions and a toxic level of methadone, not from injuries from the fight.
