A manslaughter charge has been laid after the death of a man in late December in Chilliwack, B.C.
A statement from the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team says 45 year old Carlton Leith died several days after he was injured Dec. 27 during a fight with another man.
A 42 year old suspect was arrested shortly after the assault, and RCMP said the isolated incident did not pose a risk to the public.
William Escott remains in custody, charged with several offences, including manslaughter and aggravated assault.
Court records show he returns to court in Chilliwack on Monday.
Investigators are now appealing for other witnesses who have not yet come forward to do so.
