A 15-year-old has been charged with manslaughter following the death of a Polish man in Harlow, Essex.
The Crown Prosecution Service authorised Essex Police to charge the teenager, who cannot be named due to his age.
Arkadiusz Jozwik, a 40-year-old factory worker, was assaulted in August outside a takeaway.
Six teenagers were arrested following the attack and Mr Jozwick died of serious head injuries two days after the incident.
Another 43-year-old man, believed to be a friend of Mr Jozwick’s, was also taken to hospital after the attack, IBTimes reported.
Senior investigating officer Detective Inspector Danny Stoten, of the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate, said: “The Crown Prosecution Service has now authorised Essex Police to charge a teenager with manslaughter in connection with the death of Mr Jozwik.
“He is due to appear at Chelmsford Youth Court on 6 January 2017.”Reuse content
