Two men have been charged with murder after a man died following an assault in Wigan.
32-year-old Daniel Eckersall and 47-year-old Geoffrey Cunliffe, who are both of Aspull, have been charged with murder and remanded to appear before Wigan Magistrates Court on Monday 25 April.
This is in relation to a report made to police on Friday 27 November 2015 that a man had been assaulted on Withington Lane, Aspull, on Wednesday 25 November and was in hospital in a critical condition.
The man, who has since been identified as 61-year-old Eric Caddick, sadly passed away on Sunday 13 March 2016.
Eckersall and Cunliffe were originally charged with section 18 assault on 1 December 2015 but have since been charged with murder as a result of Eric’s death.
