FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) – A North Carolina man was charged with voluntary manslaughter after Florence police arrested him over the weekend in connection with an assault that resulted in a death.

According to Florence County Detention Center records, Nastedman Freeman Jr., 30, of Riegelwood, N.C., remains in jail Monday afternoon under a $100,000 surety bond for the voluntary manslaughter charge.

Florence Police Lt. Mike Brandt said officers went to 1520 W. Palmetto St., just before 4:15 a.m., Saturday in reference to an assault.

Over the course of the investigation, it was learned the suspect and the victim had a brief argument before Freeman allegedly punched the individual, causing the person to fall, according to Brandt.

The suspect left, but was found nearby. He was arrested and initially charged with aggravated assault.

Brandt said the victim was taken to the hospital and later died from injuries.

According to Florence County Coroner Keith von Lutcken, the victim has been identified as Carol S. "Trey" Altman, 27, of Florence. An autopsy is scheduled to be performed Tuesday at the Medical University of South Carolina. 

The incident remains under investigation by the Florence Police Department and the Florence County Coroner’s Office.
