CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - An Alum Creek man faces a voluntary manslaughter charge stemming from the death of a pastor.

Media outlets report that Charleston police arrested 36-year-old David Sharp on Monday.

Sharp is accused of shoving 76-year-old Arthur Hensley of Chapmanville during an argument outside a doctor’s office at a Charleston hospital. Police say Hensley lost his balance and his head hit a concrete pillar.

Hensley died this past weekend after being in a coma since the Sept. 10 incident.

Police say Hensley was going to a doctor’s appointment when he saw Sharp and his wife hugging and kissing. Police say Hensley told the couple that their behavior was “over the top.” The two men then argued.

Sharp told media outlets that he was sorry for the incident.
