May 17, 2010 (CHICAGO) --
Natasha McShane, 24, who was beaten with a baseball bat last month in Bucktown, is now being treated for her injuries at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago.McShane, a University of Illinois at Chicago graduate student from Northern Ireland, had been at Northwestern Memorial Hospital since she and friend Stacy Jurich, 23, were attacked April 23.
McShane's family released a statement May 7 that said she was out of a coma and had exhibited "limited" brain activity. There has been no additional update.
Jurich is out of the hospital and attended a fundraiser for McShane last weekend.
Two people -- Heriberto Viramontes, 30, and Marcy Cruz, 25, -- have been charged in the beating and were due in court Monday.
