Two Ocean City Men Charged in Connection with Assault Death

Posted:

OCEAN CITY, Md.- Ocean City police say they have arrested two suspects in connection with an assault that led to a man's death early Sunday morning in the beach town. 

Police say the suspects are identified as 27-year old Caleb Edwin-Earl Ochse and 22-year-old Christopher Blake Kendall, both from Ocean City. Police say both have been charged with manslaughter, second-degree assault, affray and reckless endangerment.

Police said that at around 3:12 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 24, they found 37-year-old Justin Daniel Cancelliere, of North Whitehall, Pa. unconscious and unresponsive in the parking lot of the Plim Plaza Hotel on North Atlantic Ave. 

Ocean City Police Department spokesperson Lindsay O'Neal said the incident did not occur in the parking lot.

"It actually occurred at the corner of Talbot Street and Baltimore, but the people that he was with went to the Plim Plaza and that's where they called in 911," O'Neal said.

Police said Cancelliere was taken to Atlantic General Hospital in Berlin for treatment and was later pronounced dead. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for the State of Maryland ruled the cause of Cancelliere's death a homicide.

On Tuesday, Ocean City detectives, with assistance from the Worcester County Sheriff's Office Criminal Enforcement Team, arrested Ochse at his place of employment. Police say Kendall turned himself at the Ocean City Public Safety Building several hours later.

According to Ocean City Police, Ochse and Kendall are currently being held at the Ocean City Public Safety Building awaiting an initial appearance before a Maryland District Court Commissioner.
