OKLAHOMA CITY -

A man is facing a second-degree manslaughter charge, after authorities said he assaulted another man, leaving him on the ground where he eventually froze to death back in March in Oklahoma City.

According to Oklahoma City police, at about 10:23 a.m. on March 1, officers responded to the report of a body found in the 6800 block of Lyrewood Lane. The victim, 27-year-old Brandon Mauriel Rogers Jr., was transported to Baptist Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Although the victim had some trauma to his body, police said it was unclear at that time what caused his death.

During investigation, police learned that 30-year-old Marcus Dontae Moore and Rogers knew each other. On the day of Rogers’ death, police said Moore went to Rogers’ home where the two got into an altercation. The fight spilled outside where Moore continued to assault and beat Rogers before leaving him on the ground. Police said Rogers eventually froze to death.

The Oklahoma County District Attorney’s Office has accepted a charge of second-degree manslaughter after former conviction of a felony against Moore, who is currently in DOC custody at a prison facility in Lawton on unrelated charges. 

Police listed Rogers’ death as Oklahoma City’s 59th homicide of 2015.
