OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Omaha police have confirmed an arrest in the death of a man who died after being punched in the face, falling and hitting his head on concrete.

Police say 33-year-old Willie McIntyre was arrested Thursday on suspicion of first-degree assault. Investigators believe he punched 26-year-old Benjamin Moore early Wednesday morning at a party in north Omaha.

Moore died from his injuries Sunday. Police said Tuesday that the Douglas County Attorney’s Office will determine whether to increase the charge against McIntyre in the wake of Moore’s death.
