Four boys, 13 and 14-years-old, are due in court Friday in Milwaukee in the mob attack that killed a man.

They're scheduled for probable cause hearings on adult charges of first-degree reckless homicide.

The oldest person charged in the case appeared in court Thursday and had a $250,000 bail set by a court commissioner who said there was probable cause 32-year-old Antonio Albert was involved in the incident.

Authorities say a mob made up mostly of boys -- one as young as 10 -- beat 36-year-old Charlie Young Junior to death with broomsticks, shovels, a milk crate and other items after an altercation the night of Sept. 29. He died two days later.

Prosecutors have charged 11 boys and three men in the death. Two boys, ages 10 and 15, were charged as juveniles, and the other nine, ages 13 to 17, as adults along with an 18-year-old and a 19-year-old.
