Carson City deputies have arrested two men in connection with a fight that killed a third person.

Sheriff Ken Furlong says deputies were initially called out to the Stanton Arms Apartments on Thursday at 8pm on the report of a stabbing. Upon further investigation, they say the three people involved were all acquaintances of each other and possibly drunk - and at some point an argument turned into a fight critically injuring 61-year-old Leon Arellano Pacheco.

Pacheco was flown by Care Flight to Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno with life threatening injuries. He died Friday afternoon.

Deputies arrested 29-year-old Alfredo Santiago and 27-year-old Ruri Santiago.

Both men have been charged with battery causing substantial bodily harm. And deputies say although both have bail set at $15,000 each, they both have had additional immigration holds placed on them for deportation proceedings following the resolution of the criminal charges.
