MANSLAUGHTER CHARGE ADDED TO MAN ACCUSED OF BEATING FATHER TO DEATH

(Richmond, IN)--Charges have been modified after an initial hearing for the Richmond man accused of beating his father to death earlier this week.  Mitchel Legg now faces an added charge of involuntary manslaughter in addition to the original reckless homicide and aggravated battery charges originally filed in connection with the death of his father, Jimmy.  Jimmy Legg had a history of domestic violence.  Mitchel Legg also had a run-in with police.  Back in 2009, he walked into RPD headquarters to fill out a gun permit application but had pockets that were filled with marijuana and a gun hidden in his waistband.  He was patted down when officers smelled what was described as an overwhelming odor of marijuana and arrested.
