Eufaula boy's father pleads not guilty in murder

WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) - A Worcester, Massachusetts man accused of inflicting a fatal beating on his 7-year-old son on Father's Day has been ordered held without bail after pleading not guilty to murder and other charges. The young boy is from Eufaula.

Leslie Schuler was arraigned on Wednesday in Worcester Superior Court following his indictment by a grand jury a week ago.

Prosecutors allege that Schuler repeatedly beat his son, Nathaniel Turner, culminating in a brutal attack on June 21, Father's Day. The boy died a few days later.

Nathaniel had lived with his grandmother most of his life in Alabama, but had moved to Worcester around Memorial Day to stay with his father for the summer.

Schuler's fiancee, Tiffany Hyman, is awaiting trial on charges of being an accessory after the fact and reckless endangerment. Prosecutors say she failed to intervene in the beatings.
