Manslaughter alleged in death of father

A 23-year-old Winnipeg man has been charged with manslaughter in connection to the death of a father of five at his daughter's 18th birthday party on Saturday.
Winnipeg police said Darren James Hall is in custody and will make an initial court appearance on Monday morning.
Police say Garth Isfeld, 44, died after allegedly being hit over the head by with a beer bottle outside his home on Stuart Avenue at around 12:30 a.m. on Saturday.
Const. Blair Good said a man at the party who had been asked to leave stood outside the home. When Isfeld came out, he was hit with a bottle and knocked to the ground.
Despite being taken to hospital with what police called minor injuries, family members said Isfeld developed blood clots and died.
Police interviewed a number of witnesses and have charged Hall in connection with Isfeld's death, which they say is Winnipeg's second homicide of 2010.
