Trial starts for 10-year-old boy
accused in homeless beating starts

The trial of a 10-year-old boy accused of beating and stoning a homeless man began this morning in Volusia County.

The boy is charged with aggravated battery in the attack on John D'Amico. Police say he and another 10-year-old, along with their 17-year-old friend, Jeremy Woods, attacked D'Amico and dropped a cinderblock on his face. The boy says D'Amico attacked first and the boys were defending themselves. D'Amico has denied that claim.

D'Amico was in court this morning, with a large white bandage covering his left eye. He suffered the injury in the attack, he said.

The two 10-year-olds are believed to be the youngest boys ever charged with beating a homeless person.
