The District Attorney's Office this morning filed murder charges against a man who assaulted a Chinese takeout owner two years ago.
Jicun Wu, 44, died Thursday, more than 21 months after he was viciously attacked by Malik Niblack.
Wu died at Einstein's Willowcrest rehabilitative facility. He had been there or next door at Albert Einstein Medical Center ever since the attack, never recovering enough to return home.
Wu and his wife ran a takeout on 66th Avenue near Uber Street in West Oak Lane. On the morning of June 8, 2010, Niblack, then 21, who lived nearby, waited outside. After Wu returned from buying groceries, Niblack punched him to the ground, then kicked him at least 10 times, severely damaging Wu's pancreas and intestines, as he went in and out of consciousness.
