The victim, 30-year-old Andy Richardson of Atlanta, was attending a concert by KORN at the HiFi Buys Ampitheater. Atlanta police homicide Detective Brett Zimbrick testified at the hearing that Richardson was knocked to the ground by a punch from Axley, fatally hit his head on the concrete floor at the former Lakewood Ampitheater and was punched twice more as he lay unconscious.
UPDATE: As pointed out by moko in the comments (and confirmed by other sources), Axley was indicted on the charges of felony murder and aggravated assault, not convicted.

With guitarist Jared visibly absent at tonight's (Aug 19) Family Values stop in Devore, CA, Flyleaf got a little help from their friends; MySpace Friends. Flyleaf was joined onstage by a female fan that sent them a video of herself playing 'Breathe Today' on guitar. The band liked her rendition so much they invited her on stage to fill in for an ailing Jared. Stone Sour guitarist, Josh Rand, who was celebrating his birthday, filled in on guitars for the song 'Fully Alive.' Jim Root (Slipknot, Stone Sour) filled in later on a song also. The rest of the songs were played by the bands guitar tech.
Flyleaf are out with the video to their latest single 'Fully Alive', from the band's self-titled debut. You can watch it at Yahoo! Music.
Flyleaf is currently on tour in North America with the Family Values tour with Korn, Deftones and others.
Flyleaf dropped by MTV studios to perform a set for MTV.com Live. You can watch performances of 'I'm So Sick', 'Fully Alive', and 'Sorrow' here.
Flyleaf are currently on tour with the Family Values Tour with 10 Years, Deftones, Korn, and Stone Sour.
Andy Richardson, who was badly beaten in a fight at a Family Values concert, has since passed. More details about the events that lead to the fight and his death have been revealed. Here are some excerpts from an AZCentral article adding to what had already been reported here:
"We just went out there to have a good night," said one friend, Eddie Arellano. "It was starting off fun. And then this whole thing turned into a nightmare."
According to Arellano and others at the concert, there was a group of rowdy men at the show.
"These guys were just way too drunk. They had too many fights," Arellano said.
Earlier in the evening, some of the rowdies tumbled down a hill, crashing into Richardson and his friends. There was a brief scuffle, according to Bernice Averil, who was in Richardson's group. A little later, the rowdies returned and one of them snatched Richardson's cap.
"When they took his hat he stood up and said 'We've already had a fight. I don't want to have any problems,' " Arellano said, describing the moments just before the punch. "The guy threw the hat back at him. And when he (Richardson) caught it, the guy hit him in the face and he hit the ground and hit the concrete with the back of his head. He just collapsed.
"His face was bloody. It was bad. It was horrible," said Arellano, who was Richardson's roommate.
The person who threw the punch and that person's friend ran off, Arellano said.
Atlanta police spokesman Officer Steve Coleman said homicide detectives "have people of interest" but no arrests had been made. Police have a "vague description" of the person who threw the punch, according to Sgt. Kevin Iosty.
Jack Gannon, a spokesman for House of Blues, a California-based company that has a sponsorship deal with what's now called HiFi Buys Amphitheater, said the incident was "unfortunate and tragic" and that the company is "cooperating fully with the Atlanta Police Department investigation."

A 30-year-old man who was beaten in the mosh pit at the Family Values show at Atlanta's Hi-Fi Buys Amphitheater on Sunday night is hospitalized and on life support after being declared brain dead. According to Atlanta's WSB-TV, 30-year-old Andy Richardson is in critical condition following the fight, during which two unidentified men attacked him in the mosh pit after Richardson asked the men to be careful not to hurt his pregnant girlfriend and a mentally challenged child they had with them.
"Can you imagine your child goes to a concert and be killed for it, because of people out there fighting to have a quote unquote good time?" Richardson's mom, Gloria told the station. "And I'm angry. I'm very angry. Why were the police not there to stop them?"
A friend of Richardson's who attended the Korn-headlined show with him, Edgar Arellano, said the fight broke out after Richardson asked the men to be careful, but it ended soon after that and the men left the area. "We were all enjoying the concert, we were having a good time, until these two guys came around," Arellano said, adding that the men showed up again and one of them punched Richardson in the head, knocking him head first onto the concrete.
"He was unconscious. He had blood all over his face when I picked him up," Arellano said.
WSB-TV reported that homicide investigators are looking into the beating, but have only a vague description of the suspects. A spokesperson for the Atlanta Police Department could not be reached for comment at press time. A spokesperson for the amphitheater could not be reached for comment.
Richardson's mother said her son is brain dead and on life support and is not expected to live.
KORN officially resurrected the Family Values tour last night (Saturday, July 29) in Antioch, Tennessee, with a line-up featuring DEFTONES, 10 YEARS, STONE SOUR, FLYLEAF and others. The group's setlist was as follows:

According to KornUnleashed.net, highlights of the show included:
* Chino Moreno of the DEFTONES and Jonathan Davis playing "Wicked" for the first time in over six years.
* KORN leaving the stage and coming in the middle of the crowd to perform an acoustic set of "Hollow Life".
* The Family Values 2006 tour drew more people than any other event held at the Starwood Amphitheater.
* STONE SOUR performing "Through Glass" live for the first time ever.
According to a posting on the KORN fan site KornUnleashed.net, PEEPING TOM — the new project of Mike Patton (FAITH NO MORE, MR. BUNGLE, TOMAHAWK, FANTOMAS) — has been added to The Family Values Tour 2006. The band will reportedly join the tour's second-stage lineup along with already confirmed acts 10 YEARS, BURY YOUR DEAD, BULLETS AND OCTANE and DEADSY.
The Family Values Tour 2006 billing is now shaping up as follows:
DIR EN GREY
BURY YOUR DEAD
BULLETS AND OCTANE
With the addition of a second stage and many top rock acts, fans will get even greater value from the Live Nation-produced Family Values Tour, as the festival features $9.99 lawn tickets and value-priced seating available at every outdoor amphitheatre along the tour route, making it one of the hottest tickets of the summer.

Seven more acts will be announced soon. For more information, visit jjobandcamp.com.
As previously reported, Korn and The Deftones are heading up the ressurected Family Values Tour, started and headlined by Korn eight years ago. This year's tour is said to have a second stage for the first time, with acts yet to be announced. The main stage will be rounded out by Stone Sour, Flyleaf and Dir En Grey, who Davis described as "this crazy Japanese band that are just out of their minds." Lawn tickets will be $9.99 at each stop.
MTV.com has some more detail and commentary by Jonathan Davis and Deftones frontman Chino Moreno:
"The first [Family Values] with us on it was the best, and we just decided, let's do this again," Korn singer Jonathan Davis said of 1998's outing with Limp Bizkit, Ice Cube, Rammstein and Orgy. "We're gonna break out the old Family Values stuff we got in storage and really put on a cool show."
"No band can go down to $9.99 and do the production and that kind of stuff that we're doing, but the deal we did [becoming equal partners with EMI and promoters Live Nation] allows us to be able to do that, which is really cool," Davis said. "I don't want to slap bands for making their ticket prices so high, 'cause I understand production and that stuff costs a lot. ... But Madonna's are like 300 bucks a ticket. I can't even believe that. Ten bucks for a show is ridiculous, and I think kids that aren't Korn fans will wanna go just to check out other bands or just go to have a good time."
Having a good time will also be a priority for Korn, who will balance their intense sets with a lot of backstage hanging out.
"We haven't toured with [the Deftones] since '97 or '96, and we're really excited," Davis said. "We love those guys. We started out together. Literally it was us and them, and back in the day we used to drive to Sacramento [California] and play at their home clubs. And they would drive to Huntington Beach and play the clubs we'd play, so we've been friends for a long, long time, and it's cool to be back together again and sharing the same stage."
