Redding Police have filed murder charges against two of the men involved in a Redding street fight that left 48-year-old Claude Alexander Schimes dead.
Investigators say 19-year-old Nathan Robert Byers and 22-year-old Richard James Hiers were in a four-minute fight near the intersection of Elmwood and Veda Streets in Redding early Sunday.
Redding Police initially responded to reports of a car accident, but found Schimes and 29-year-old John Raymond Fritz laying in the street injured.
Schimes was transported to Mercy Medical Center where he passed away on Tuesday. Fritz is in stable condition and has been speaking with investigators.
