PRESCOTT VALLEY, Ariz. — A Wendy's employee faces second-degree murder charges after allegedly punching a customer in Arizona last month.
On July 26, police were called to the restaurant on Glassford Hill Road for an injured person.
A customer complained about his food order, which led employee Antoine Kendrick to come out from behind the counter and hit the 67-year-old customer in the head, according to the Prescott Valley Police Department.
The customer then fell to the floor, hit his head, and lost consciousness. He was later flown to a Phoenix-area hospital, where he died on Aug. 5.
Kendrick was arrested and initially charged with aggravated assault.
Those charges were later upgraded to second-degree murder, police said.
No other details have been released.
