A manslaughter charge has been laid against an 18-year-old man in connection with a fatal attack in Duncan more than a year ago.
In the early morning hours of March 1, 2021, the North Cowichan-Duncan RCMP received reports of an assault in the area of Cowichan Lake Road.
When officers arrived on the scene a man surrendered, and police found another man suffering from life-threatening injuries.
Paramedics rushed the victim to the hospital by ambulance, but he did not survive.
Because the accused was a youth at the time of the offense, his name will not be released.
