Mark Curtis Magurean, a 57-year-old white man, died Wednesday, March 16, two months after he was struck in the head in the 300 block of East Avenue I in Lancaster, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.
On Jan. 22, Magurean, a Lancaster resident, got into an argument with another Lancaster resident, Timony Munroe, 33, that escalated into a physical fight, according to a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department news release.
Magurean suffered a blunt-force injury to the head and was taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead March 16, according to the release.
Munroe left the scene after the fight, but was arrested Jan. 27. He pleaded guilty to battery with great bodily injury, and was sentenced to seven years in state prison, according to the news release.
With Magurean’s death, Munroe is now facing the possibility of murder charges, investigators said.
The case is still under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff’s Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500. Those wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.
