Manslaughter charge filed in deadly bar fight
MITCHELL, S.D. (AP) — A deadly bar fight has led to manslaughter charges against a Mitchell man.
Mitchell police say 26-year-old Dylan Thompson was involved in a fight that seriously injured a 59-year-old man on Jan. 3 at Thirsty’s Bar. Thompson was originally arrested on an aggravated assault charge. That charge was amended to first-degree manslaughter after the man died on Tuesday. Police have not identified the victim.
First-degree manslaughter is a class C felony, punishable by up to life in prison and a $50,000 fine.
