Officials calling Portsmouth bar death a homicide
Joshua Krantz, 24, died as a result of a homicide, according to the chief medical examiner's office. It remains to be seen whether charges against his assailant will be upgraded. (Courtesy)
It had been previously determined that Krantz's death was caused by a fractured skull resulting in an acute epidural hematoma.
Now that the manner of Krantz's death has been determined, it will be up to the Rockingham County Attorney's office to upgrade or change the charges against O'Neill.
"They key to any homicide charge is criminal intent and that … depends on all the circumstances," Reams said. "Technically, the homicide determination means it (the death) was caused by a person. It doesn't give any insight into whether it's first-degree, second-degree, manslaughter."
He said it is hard to say right now whether the charges will be upgraded.
As of late Monday morning, Reams said his office had not yet received the medical examiner's report.
