LAWTON, Okla._A Lawton man accused in a brutal beating earlier this week will appear in court Monday to face a formal charge.

Lawton police say the District Attorney's Office has accepted the case against Lucas Christon. He's accused of beating David Leaston unconscious outside an apartment complex on the 2400 block of Northwest 23rd Street.

Police say the victim's condition is improving after he was placed on a breathing ventilator Wednesday in Oklahoma City. He is now breathing on his own.

The suspect was identified in video captured by surveillance cameras at the apartment complex.
