WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) — A Worcester man is headed to court to face charges in connection with a deadly fight at a city apartment complex over the holiday weekend.

Police say 18-year-old Michael Ventura is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday on a charge of aggravated assault and battery with a dangerous weapon causing serious bodily injury.

Police say Ventura and 18-year-old Robert Walker of Blackstone got into a fight at a party at Crestwood Arms apartments early Sunday morning. The fight started inside and moved outside where police allege Ventura hit Walker over the head with a bottle.

Walker was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The death remains under investigation.

It could not be determined whether Ventura had a lawyer.
