Daniel Rosal and two other suspects, Michael Rosal and William San Nicolas were in court today for a status hearing on Masnayon’s condition.
Masnayon is in California for rehabilitative therapy. He's had to undergo numerous brain and facial reconstructive surgeries as a result of the March 18 beatings that doctors say shattered his skull to several pieces.

Prosecutors today said Masnayon was moved to outpatient rehab on Sept. 11 and will be in there for another 6 weeks.
Daniel Rosal’s attorney, Jeff Warfield has filed a bail motion for his client on personal recognizance. But Judge Barcinas said he’ll only entertain release of Daniel to a third party custodian and that Daniel would have to abide by a curfew.
Initially, both brothers, Daniel and Michael Rosal, filed for bail under a third party custodian but the judge denied the request.
"The issue we were having initially is that they needed separate third party custodians They needed to live at two separate residences so the judge didn’t approve it at that time. Since we’re basically in a situation where this trial is delayed indefinitely, the judge is now at least willing to reconsider releasing our clients, particularly my client who has no criminal history," said Warfield. "This is a first offense for him and only an allegation at this point."
Meanwhile Michael Rosal is planning to plead guilty to an assault charge in an unrelated case. The 21-year-old was arrested last December for allegedly punching Terrence Dwayne Braddock near the Kmart intersection traffic light.
The hearing, however, was rescheduled because it wasn’t clear whether the victim had been duly notified of the change in plea.
The three suspects are due back in court on October 5 at 2 pm. Daniel Rosal, however, may be released as early as next Friday.
