WAIANAE (KHNL) - A beating at a fast-food restaurant nearly two weeks ago is now a homicide.  69-year-old Domingo Correa was put on life support following the vicious attack. He died Thursday.

53-year-old Gary Avilez is expected to be re-charged with murder.

Investigators say, Avilez was in the restroom at the Waianae Burger King on April 7th when the victim, who was in there earlier, tried to get in to retrieve his fanny pack.

The suspect is accused of beating the elderly man, who family members described as mentally challenged.
