PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Jonathan Stack, the man who was brutally beaten with a 2×4 piece of wood last week in Providence, has died at the hospital. Providence police say Stack, 34, passed away late Saturday night.
Daniel Lastarza, 48, of Providence with two counts of assault with a dangerous weapon. At his arraignment last week, a judge set bail at $100,000 for the assault, but then ordered him held without bail as a probation violator.
Officials have not said if the charges against Lastarza will be upgraded following Stack’s death.
