A Washington State University instructor, who was severely beaten and spent the better part of two weeks fighting for his life, has been released from a Spokane hospital and transferred to a Post Falls long-term care facility.

David Warner, a 41-year-old professor of ethnic studies, was attacked March 30 in a parking lot of the Adams Mall in Pullman, Wash. Eyewitnesses said Warner was trying to break up a fight when he became the victim.

An anonymous tip led detectives to the arrest of four suspects—including two WSU students—in connection with the attack.

WSU's college newspaper—The Daily Evergreen—reports that Warner suffered severe head trauma and was transferred to the Northern Idaho Advanced Care Hospital, which "treats patients who require long-term acute and intensive care after catastrophic injury or illness."
