When the fight broke out in the Dollar General parking lot, Chad Fields caught a fist to his face and a can of chili to his head, witnesses said.|
Armed with a pipe, he fought back against former friend Russell “Rusty” Huntley, who moments later slammed Fields’ head into the store wall.
Two days later, those blows caused brain hemorrhaging that killed Fields, 26, Augusta County authorities said. Deputies Thursday morning arrested Huntley, 24, of Verona, for voluntary manslaughter.
News of the arrest brought relief to Fields’ wife, Katherine, who said she hasn’t gone out much since her husband died, for fear of running into Huntley.
“They both fought. They both were in the wrong,” she said by phone.
