SNOW HILL, Md. (AP) - A Sparrows Point man has been convicted in the death of another man after a fight in Ocean City.
    
Twenty-one-year-old Darren M. Beattie was convicted of manslaughter and assault. A Worcester County Circuit Court jury found Beattie guilty on Tuesday.
    
Prosecutors say Beattie got into a fight on May 29 with 31-year-old Ryan Shupert of Lutherville. Shupert died two days later at a local hospital.

Police said that once they tentatively identified Beattie as the suspect, they traveled to the Dundalk and Sparrows Point neighborhoods of Baltimore County on June 4 and with the help of Baltimore County police were able to locate and interview Beattie, along with other witnesses and involved parties.
    
Beattie now faces a sentence of up to 10 years in prison for manslaughter.
