LAUGHLIN, Nev. (AP) - Police say a man who was found beaten in the casino corridor in Laughlin last week succumbed to his injuries a few days later.

Authorities say they responded to South Casino Drive in Laughlin on Wednesday when they found a man unconscious and bleeding from his face.

He was taken to the hospital in critical condition and died on Sunday. Authorities identified him as 59-year-old Joseph Chernowsky.

Investigators say 54-year-old suspect Michael Dean Dymond left the scene, but was found the next day in a desert area and arrested on suspicion of battery with substantial bodily harm.

Police say they believe Dymond and the victim knew each other and got into a physical fight that involved Dymond hitting the man several times in the face.
