FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - A man who was born with brain damage after his pregnant teen mother was fatally stabbed has died 23 years after the attack.

The South Florida Sun Sentinel (https://bit.ly/2gg8Vgc ) reports 23-year-old Julius Dyke died Sunday.

After Dyke’s mother, Lisa, suffered severe stab wounds in January 1993, doctors rushed to save her unborn son.

Julius Dyke was born with brain damage and was never able to walk or talk.

He was confined to a bed in his grandmother’s South Florida home where she took care of him.

Lisa Dyke died 18 days after Julius was born. Her attacker, Ronnie Keith Williams, is on Florida’s death row.

Authorities say Williams attacked Dykes when he came to an apartment where she was babysitting, looking for his ex-girlfriend.
