A Thunder Bay man and a 14-year-old boy accused in last week’s vicious beating of an 18-year-old city man at a south-side home are now facing charges of first-degree murder.

City police said Austin Peter Robinson suffered life-threatening injuries after he was beaten with “instruments” in the early hours of Jan 9 at a N. Syndicate Avenue residence.

Robinson died on the weekend in hospital. The results of an autopsy conducted in Toronto haven’t been released.
