Hsinchu County prosecutors have said they would not seek homicide charges against a man who last year had an altercation with another man, who died about one hour after the incident.

The man surnamed Lo (羅) argued with the other man surnamed Chung (鍾) after he felt the latter took too long using an ATM that Lo was waiting to use, police said.

The two allegedly engaged in an argument that led to a physical altercation, police said.

The Institute of Forensic Medicine performed an autopsy on Chung’s body and found that his aorta had ruptured, which sent him into shock, leading to his death.    [FULL  STORY]
