DAYTON — A Dayton man was indicted by a grand jury Tuesday on a new charge of murder after the victim in an assault he was previously charged for died earlier this year.
Harvey Bell Sr., 48, was indicted today on murder for the death of Michael Goode, 47, of Dayton.
Goode was assaulted on Dec. 29 on Germantown Street in Dayton and died less than a month later on Jan. 19. Goode had been found at the Food City in the 1800 block of Germantown around 9 p.m.
Surveillance video showed Bell hit Goode with his fist inside the grocery store and Good fell to the ground outside the store, records show. Goode had brain damage from the attack.
He died from blunt force trauma to the head and his death was ruled a homicide, according to Montgomery County Coroner Dr. Kent Harshbarger.
Bell is scheduled to be arraigned on Thursday and is not currently in custody.
Bell had previously been charged with felonious assault in the case.
