LETHBRIDGE, Alta. - Two men have been charged with manslaughter after a 63-year-old man died after being assaulted last weekend in Lethbridge, Alta.

Police say Barry Pelletier was set upon by two men who believed he was responsible for an earlier theft.

Pelletier was taken to hospital and admitted for treatment of blunt force injuries, but he died earlier this week.

Lethbridge police are awaiting the result of an autopsy.

Scott Randall Otsby, 28, and Randall Clarence Otsby 61, have been remanded in custody to appear in court Monday.
