Police arrested Loay Abdelfattah Alnaji on Thursday after an investigation into Kessler’s death. Alnaji apparently struck Kessler on the head, which caused the latter to fall back on the ground and die from his injuries.
What police are charging as manslaughter took place on Nov. 5 in Thousand Oaks, California.
ABC News reports that Kessler died from “blunt-force trauma.”
”The Ventura County Medical Examiner’s Office said Kessler suffered from skull fractures and swelling and bruising of the brain and determined his death to be a homicide,” the outlet reports.
Alnaji and Kessler were participating in concurrent but opposing protests in proximity of one another leading up to the altercation that led to the latter’s death.
