Eight defendants who have been indicted for the beating of a Jesse Bethel High School student in January appeared in Solano County Superior Court today but did not enter pleas. The defendants are scheduled to enter pleas June 5, said William Pendergast, attorney for defendant Ron Tili. The indictment charges the defendants with attempted murder, assault likely to cause great bodily injury and torture. The defendants had been scheduled for a preliminary hearing today. The subsequent indictment will bypass that hearing and the case will go to trial. A trial date might be set June 5.  Pendergast confirmed the defendants are Alexander Tili, 26; Abraham Tili, 26; Ray Tili, 18; Ron Tili, 18; Kevin Young, 18; Nicholas Cole, 16; Heinakau Anitoni and Alonzo Brumfield, 21. Bryant Lee, 17, was beaten by several suspects at the school on Jan. 15. Police found him unconscious around 4:30 p.m.  Police quickly arrested the Tilis, Cole and Young. The beating was captured on video taken by a surveillance camera. It showed the suspects repeatedly hitting, kicking and choking Lee, according to police. The Solano County District Attorney’s Office would not release any information today about the indictment.
