MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Family members of a man badly beaten are speaking out after the man accused in the beating plead guilty to an attempted murder charge.

Investigators say Mariquez Moore beat Alasaane Sy with an aluminum baseball bat following a convenience store parking lot dispute back in 2012.

Moore was 15 years old at the time of the attack. He recently plead guilty to attempted first-degree murder.
