Assault Victim Dies From Injuries

CORPUS CHRISTI - Murder charges are now pending against a man previously arrested for aggravated assault, after the victim died from his injuries.

Jeffry Schexnider, 45, died Thursday at a hospital in San Antonio.

He was flown there from Corpus Christi for treatment, after he was assaulted November 6 outside Club Cheetah on SPID.

Witnesses told police Schexnider was knocked unconscious outside the club and never recovered.

The following day, Mark Booker, 43, was arrested at a home on Curtis Clark.

Police say he was found hiding in a closet.

CCPD says detectives plan to sit down with District Attorney Mark Skurka in the next few days, and discuss upgrading the charges against Booker to murder.
