SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — A man who was injured in a fight with a neighbor on Labor Day has died from his injuries.

Carey was found unresponsive in the front yard of a home in Springfield on Sept. 4. He died Tuesday.
Prosecutors say 41-year-old Jimmy Davis, who was originally charged with assault, is now charged with involuntary manslaughter.
