He later died when he was taken off life support on August 2.

The charges of aggravated assault will be stayed against both men, and Marchand now faces an additional charge of manslaughter. The decision to upgrade charges comes after Crown counsel reviewed enhanced cell phone video from the night of the incident.
Marchand remains in prison in Prince George, but that may change now that the charge he was detained for after his bail hearing is being stayed.
Both accused have elected for a trial by judge and jury, and a two-day preliminary inquiry is being scheduled to determine whether there is enough evidence to hold a trial for Metcalfe. Marchand has already committed to a trial. Crown counsel says that if there is enough evidence shown in the preliminary inquiry, a new indictment will be laid against Marchand in Supreme Court.
A focus hearing will be held before the inquiry.
