East Baton Rouge Parish, LA — Jeryet Bourg, 26, was arrested on Wednesday and charged with Manslaughter for the killing of Chistopher Dimatiia, 36, on July 22.
The two men were engaged in a verbal altercation while at a party around 3:00 a.m. According to witnesses, Bourg shoved Dimattia, and he fell to the ground hitting his head on the concrete.
The fall made Dimattia lose consciousness, so witnesses to the altercation brought him inside the Albert Hart residence. Several hours later the witnesses went back to check on him and discovered that he had died. An autopsy performed on Dimattia showed that he died from skull fractures and trauma to the head he sustained when he fell to the ground.
Bourg was booked into EBRSO Parish prison.
