ANADARKO — The state medical examiner says a 57-year-old man who was attacked at an Anadarko car wash died from multiple blunt force trauma to the face and head.
The Medical Examiner's Office said Wednesday that 57-year-old James “Jimmy” Taylor's death has been ruled a homicide.
A local newspaper reports that Taylor was found unresponsive at a car wash on April 1. Police say a pair of brass knuckles was found at the scene.
Taylor's son, Carnell Ray, was arrested on an assault complaint after the attack. Authorities upgraded the charges to first-degree murder with deliberate attempt to commit a felony after Taylor's death.
