HOWLAND — Four men accused of participating in the brutal beating of two other men in Howland have been ordered held on $10,000 bail each.
Authorities say Brandon Summerson of Enfield; as well as John McKinnon, Henry McKinnon, and Charles Gardner, all from Howland, were in court Monday to face charges of aggravated assault in connection with the attack.
The victims, ages 30 and 31, were beaten last Friday. Police say one victim has facial fractures and will need extensive facial reconstructive surgery. The older victim suffered numerous fractures that include a broken eye socket, broken ribs and knocked out teeth. Both remain hospitalized.
The suspects were arrested over the weekend.
Prosecutors tell the Bangor Daily News a dispute over money apparently sparked the fight.
