YAKIMA, WA - The Yakima County Coroner says a 78-year-old realtor died over the weekend from injuries he received in a brutal attack last May.

The coroner says Vern Holbrook died from bacterial aspiration pneumonia related to the severe head trauma. Deputies say four people conspired together to have the older man killed.

The Yakima County Prosecutor tells us their current charges will be upgraded to murder. The prosecutor says they still haven't determined to which degree but are leaning toward first-degree murder.
