HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Police say a Hartford man found dead on a road was intentionally run over by a co-worker following a fight.

Albino M. Santiago was found dead at about 11:15 p.m. Saturday. The medical examiner said the 34-year-old Santiago suffered blunt trauma to his torso and extremities.

Police charged Jayson Mota-Royaceli with first-degree manslaughter. He was arraigned Monday and remains in custody in lieu of $1 million bail.

It was not known Wednesday morning if he’s represented by a lawyer.

Police say the 24-year-old Mota-Royaceli told police he had been involved in a crash.

He said he and Santiago argued following a party and drove to the highway where they were to fight. Mota-Royaceli said Santiago approached him with what he assumed was a weapon. Police found a baseball bat but no weapon.
