A 23-YEAR-OLD West Oak Lane man was held for trial on a murder charge Wednesday in the death of a Chinese-takeout owner whom the defendant attacked two years ago.
On the morning of June 8, 2010, Malik Niblack ambushed owner Jicun Wu outside the takeout store on 66th Avenue near Uber Street. Niblack punched Wu to the ground, then kicked him at least 10 times, severely damaging his pancreas and intestines.
Wu, 44, died March 15 at Albert Einstein Medical Center's Willowcrest rehabilitative facility. He had been at the facility or the next-door hospital for more than 21 months, never recovering enough to return home.
