WOONSOCKET â€“ A man who was hospitalized after fighting with his roommate outside a Fairmount bar on Friday died at Rhode Island Hospital two days later, the police disclosed Tuesday.
Police spokeswoman Detective Jamie Paone declined to identify the victim, saying the investigation is continuing. But she said the roommate, Alan Klemanchuck, 58, of Woonsocket, presently faces charges of domestic felony assault.
The case is now under review for a possible upgrade of the charges to murder, depending on the results of an autopsy, which Paone said was performed yesterday by the state medical examiner.
