A man accused in the death of another man on Baker Street last week is now facing a manslaughter charge.

Miles Halverson was due in Castlegar Provincial Court this morning.

He is accused in the death of Matt Reeder, 45, who died in hospital after an incident in the 600 block of Baker Street.

Halverson was initially charged with one count of aggravated assault, but court records indicate a second charge has now been laid.
