Northumbria Police released a statement on Facebook;
A sad update here on an appeal we issued last week 👇
A man has been charged with manslaughter after a man died two weeks after being assaulted in Sunderland.
Shortly before 9pm on Friday, July 10, we were flagged down by a concerned member of the public who reported an injured male lying outside a night club in the Holmeside area of Sunderland city centre.
He was identified as Jordan Bell, 27, and taken to hospital by ambulance where he has remained in a critical condition ever since.
An investigation was launched to identify those responsible for the assault and a public appeal was issued on this page.
But on Friday Jordan sadly passed away in hospital surrounded by his family. They are receiving support from specialist officers at this difficult time.
A 26-year-old man has since been arrested in connection with the assault and today they have been charged with manslaughter.
Detective Sergeant Katrina Moore said: “Jordan’s family are devastated and these past two weeks have been a living nightmare for them.
“We have been carrying out an investigation so we can establish exactly what has happened that night and get answers for Jordan’s loved ones.
“It has been treated as an assault since we first started carrying out our enquiries and now a man has been charged with manslaughter.
“But we still need to hear from anyone who may have witnessed what happened so if you can help then please get in touch.”
Jordan’s family have asked that their privacy be respected at this difficult time.
Dominic Robson, 26, of Birchwood, Sunderland, has been charged with manslaughter and will appear before South Tyneside Magistrates’ Court on Monday.
