Judge denies bond for Landeck brothers

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - One of two brothers convicted of a brutal New Year's Day beating in Richmond says he's getting death threats in jail.

Todd and David Landeck are appealing their convictions, but today a judge denied bond for both of them as they wait for a higher court to make a ruling.

The two brothers from Hanover County are serving 10 years each for aggravated malicious wounding.

The victim says the n-word and several other racial slurs were exchanged during the incident.

Now one of the brothers says he's finding notes, threatening his life

A witness snapped these pictures on Davis Street New Year's Day 2010. The woman behind the camera said the beating was horrific.

The more than 6 foot 200-pound Todd and David Landeck beat 5'4 130 pound Arthur Faison with a wooden board, cracking open his skull and permanently injuring his arm.

The jury recommended 20 years each. The judge said Faison was not without fault for landing the first blow, but also did not deserve what he got.

Defense attorneys are now blaming media coverage for death threats against David Landeck. He says notes have been left on his cot saying, "pay back time" and "deadman."   Attorneys asked for both brothers to be released pending the results of the appeal.

But the judge denied the request saying it was a really long, really brutal beating... and their release would make for a dangerous situation.

The judge sent both brothers back to the Richmond City Jail. Again they are each one month into a 10 year sentence.

It could be up to six months before we know the results of the Landecks' appeal.
