Toronto police say a man has been charged and a second suspect is still being sought in connection with the death of a 77-year-old man.

Police said officers were called to the area of Woodbine and Danforth avenues around 4:10 p.m. on Aug. 6.

A man and a woman got into an argument with the victim in front of an establishment and punched him, knocking him to the ground, police said.

The man went to hospital with critical injuries and died just over three weeks later, prompting the homicide squad to take charge of the investigation.

He was identified as Toronto resident John Manion.
