NORTH COLLEGE HILL, OH (FOX19) -

More testing will be done on the victim of a beating by six teenagers that occurred 11 months ago.

The Hamilton County Prosecutor's office confirms that 46-year-old Pat Mahaney died Friday morning, July 12.  The case was sent to the Hamilton County Coroner's Office, who says the autopsy has been completed. 

However, the coroner's office is awaiting further test results and investigative information before a cause of death is determined.

Mahaney was assaulted on Aug. 11, 2012 in North College Hill. Six teenagers were arrested in the case, ranging in ages 13 to 14. Police say the teens told them they were bored and looking for something to do.

Mahaney was released from the hospital within a couple of weeks after the attack.

Following Pat Mahaney's sudden death, Fox19's legal analyst Mike Allen says these teens could face a much harsher penalty.

"If the coroner comes back and says that his injuries are a result of that beating those kids will be charged with some type of homicide offense," said Allen.

Allen says filing additional charges in a case is rare, but it does happen.

"An individual died I think it was four or five years after the fact, and in that case, the Butler County prosecutor was able to go back and institute new charges," Allen explained.

Two of the teenagers have already been sentenced to probation and community service. Three other teens have pleaded guilty to assault and await sentencing while one other is currently fighting the charges.

Pat's brother, Jeff Mahaney, is hopeful justice will be served in the legal system.

"They did contribute to his death, but I hope the judge keeps them in jail until they're 21 anyway and I hope they can learn something from this," said Jeff.
