DAVENPORT, Iowa — A man has been arrested four months after he allegedly assaulted a man that later died in the hospital, according to the Davenport Police Department.
29-year-old Larry Wiggins Jr. was taken into custody by U.S. Marshals on arrest warrants for first-degree murder and willful injury causing serious injury.
The warrants stem from a June 20 incident where police responded to a residence in the 500 block of W. 16th Street after an assault was reported.
Officers found 58-year-old Ben Smith suffering from significant injuries. He was sent to the hospital for immediate treatment but died from his injuries two days later.
The incident remains under investigation.
