OCEAN CITY, Md.- Ocean City police detectives have arrested two suspects on manslaughter in connection with last weekend's death of a Pennsylvania man.

Police identified the two suspects as Caleb Edwin-Earl Ochse, 27, and Christopher Blake Kendall, 22, both of Ocean City. In addition to manslaughter, both suspects have been charged with second-degree assault, affray and reckless endangerment.

The arrests stemmed from an incident that occurred on Sunday, Aug. 24, when officers were called to the area of 109 North Atlantic Ave. to assist Ocean City EMS for a victim of an assault that had already occurred. Upon arrival, officers located Justin D. Cancelliere of North Whitehall, Pa., unconscious and unresponsive in the parking lot of an area hotel. After a investigation, detectives said they determined the assault occurred during an altercation in the area of Talbot Street and Baltimore Avenue.

First responders from the Ocean City police and fire departments initiated emergency lifesaving procedures on Cancelliere and transported him to Atlantic General Hospital in Berlin, where he was later pronounced deceased.

Police said the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for the State of Maryland has 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. Kendall turned himself in to police at the Ocean City Public Safety Building several hours later. Both men are  being held at the Ocean City Public Safety Building awaiting an initial appearance before a Maryland District Court Commissioner.
