The man who allegedly beat a 61-year-old nursing home resident in Illinois with a walker is no longer facing murder charges, according to court records.

Instead, a grand jury only indicted William Paschall, 71, on two counts of aggravated assault in the death of Michael Pappas at Salem Village Nursing and Rehabilitation in Joliet, outside of Chicago, records say. The grand jury did not indict Paschall on the murder charges. The Shaw Local News Network reported an autopsy determined the cause of Pappas’ death to be “undetermined.”

As Law&Crime previously reported, the Joliet Police Department was called to the nursing home around 9:30 p.m. on Nov. 17 for a report of an assault on the sixth floor. When they arrived they found the unresponsive victim in a laundry room.
