The condition of a homeless man who was beaten more than a week ago at a house in Ironton is improving.

Ironton Police Detective Chris Bowman said Larry Williams, 43 of Ironton, is now listed in stable condition at an area hospital.

Williams and another homeless man, Michael Floyd, 36, also of Ironton, were attacked Nov. 30 at a residence in the 600 block of North Fifth Street. Floyd was treated and released with minor injuries. Williams was admitted to the intensive care unit at King's Daughters Medical Center in Ashland, Ky.
