Bar patron pleads not guilty to fatal beating
January 31, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Joseph Kaufman

The man accused of beating a fellow Belmont bar patron to death after exchanging words over the victim’s female friend last April will stand trial just past the assault’s one-year anniversary on charges of murder and causing great bodily injury.

Joseph Patrick Kaufman, of San Carlos, pleaded not guilty to all counts in the death of 48-year-old Barney Hanepen who perished a few days after being severely beaten outside the Lariat Tavern on April 29.

Kaufman, 23, and Hanepen were drinking separately at the bar and, after it closed at 2:15 a.m., reportedly got into an argument outside. Kaufman allegedly punched Hanepen in the face, pushing him to the ground and repeatedly kicking him in the head and torso until the man lost consciousness. Hanepen suffered broken vertebrae, fractures to his orbital bones, broken teeth and brain bleeding. Police found him lying in the street and he remained hospitalized in critical condition until his death May 2.

After entering his not guilty plea to all charges, Kaufman was ordered back to court April 8 for a pretrial conference followed by a May 19 jury trial.

Kaufman is being held without bail.
