2nd man charged in street fight death of Mt. Lebanon native
New charges were filed on Tuesday in the slaying of a Mt. Lebanon native who was punched during a street fight in South Carolina.
Dalton Ellis Clarke, 24, of Mt. Pleasant, S.C., is charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of Clinton Seymour, 27, according to a statement from police spokesman Charles E. Francis.
Peter John Dudinyak Jr., 26, also of Mt. Pleasant, was initially charged with assault and battery in the case. That charge was dismissed by the 9th Circuit Solicitor's Office when investigators obtained additional information, Francis said. Dudinyak still is charged with simple assault.
The assault occurred about 2 a.m. April 26 during a verbal exchange between two groups of men near King and Morris streets in Charleston, Francis said.
Seymour fell when he was punched and hit his head on the concrete sidewalk, Francis said.
He suffered multiple skull fractures and brain injuries, and never regained consciousness. Seymour died two days later in the hospital.
Seymour was a 2004 graduate of Mt. Lebanon High School. He recently moved to Johns Island, just outside Charleston.
