Man Dies From Injuries Sustained In Fight

A man who was knocked out in a fight in Red Bluff last week has died of his injuries, and the man accused of beating him is in much deeper trouble. 33-year-old Rogelio McDarment was found unconscious on South Jackson Street Wednesday afternoon. Officers had been sent on a report of a fight. They arrived to find McDarment seriously injured and unresponsive. He stopped breathing and had to be resuscitated before being flown to Mercy Hospital in Redding, where he remained in critical condition until Saturday, when he was taken off life support and died. An investigation led Red Bluff Police Detectives to 26-year-old Joseph Cadotte. He was taken into custody Thursday afternoon and booked into jail for battery with great bodily injury. Bail was set at One Million Dollars. He's being arraigned Monday afternoon on an amended charge because of the death of McDarment.
