Winnipeg police have arrested a fugitive who is wanted for the violent beating death of a stranger.

Abraham Lagimodiere, 25, is charged with manslaughter for the June 16 killing of 36-year-old Marlin Gray. Lagimodiere’s lawyer, John Corona, told the Free Press Tuesday his client was nabbed by police earlier in the day and has been detained in custody.

A witness previously told the Free Press Gray had been at a Manitoba Housing complex at 1391 Fife St., when two groups got into a confrontation. The witness said Gray was trying to calm things down when he was attacked.

Police have confirmed an argument took place involving the victim, but not the exact nature of Gray's injuries.

The victim’s wife, Melanie Gray, told the Free Press she watched as he was struck with a bat and pipe before suffering a fatal blow that knocked him down. He died two days later in hospital.

A traditional aboriginal wake was held for Gray at the Swan Lake First Nation, where he lived with his family -- Melanie, and their three children, Bob, 17, Noah, 11, and Melody, 6.
