PALOS HEIGHTS, IL Misdemeanor chargers were upgraded to a felony for a Monee man accused of beating a man in July at a Palos Heights bar. Sean Killelea, 47, was charged with aggravated battery. He was due in bond court for a hearing Wednesday afternoon in Bridgeview.

Police were called to X's and O's Sports Lounge and Grill, 6505 W. 127th St., Palos Heights, on July 19 for a report of fight in progress. When officers arrived, a man, later identified as Killelea, was beating another man in the parking lot, police said.

"The victim was already unconscious when we arrived and [Killelea] continued to beat him," said Deputy Chief Bill Czajkowski of the Palos Heights Police Department.

The unconscious man had to be hospitalized due to his injuries. It was later determined he had suffered multiple skull and facial fractures, police said. Killelea was charged on the scene with misdemeanor battery charges.

Through follow-up investigations, and coordination with the Cook County State's Attorney's Office, the misdemeanor charge was vacated and a felony charge of aggravated battery was approved.
