Man near death after breaking up party

A man severely beaten at an underage drinking party last weekend was a 65-year-old neighbor who was trying to break up the gathering as sheriff’s deputies stood outside.

Doctors do not expect Frank James Motta to survive the attack.

Witnesses said Treven Lewis, 18, attacked Motta about 10 p.m. Saturday after Motta nudged Lewis’s girlfriend while telling her and other young people to leave the house, according to the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office.

Lewis is accused of pushing Motta to the ground, then punching him in the head once after he stood up.
