Cornelius Evans was charged on Friday, Oct. 25 for hitting 18-year-old Danive James of Grace, Vieux Fort in the head.
James was removed from life support machines last week Tuesday, police said.
The deceased, also known as Dave, sustained a blow to the temple during an altercation on Oct. 13, 2013 about 7 p.m., police said.
Residents in Grace told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) that a stone was used to hit James, who was in a coma at the Intensive Care Unit of St. Jude’s Hospital.
“Dave was at a shop near his home buying a phone card. While stepping out a fight broke out and a stone was used to hit him in the head. He fell to the ground without a word. He never spoke a word after that,” a resident said.
