A Vancouver man is facing manslaughter charges in the death of an elderly man following an alleged assault outside Costco late last year.
Eighty-six-year-old Orlando Ocampo of Vancouver was rushed to hospital just after 11 a.m. Dec. 20, 2017 following an altercation outside Costo on Expo Boulevard. He never recovered from his injuries and died on Jan. 11.
Thomas Stephen Toth, 58, was identified early in the investigation and has since been charged with manslaughter, Vancouver police media relations officer Const. Jason Doucette said in a press release. He has been released from custody and is scheduled to appear in court on June 14.
There have been nine homicides in Vancouver so far this year.
