TWO people were arrested this morning (June 27) in relation to the death of a 56-year-old Bungendore man in February.
The man was initially treated by paramedics on February 23, at a Bungendore residence on Hope Drive, and, at the time, it was believed the man had taken a fall.
He was admitted into intensive care and passed away two days later when he was taken off life support.
About four days later a post mortem examination revealed the deceased had suffered significant impact injuries to his head.
Following investigations, a man, 21, was charged with manslaughter and a woman, 48, was charged with accessory after the fact of manslaughter.
Police will allege a fight took place between the two men that day in February, with police alleging the younger man assaulted the older man, which resulted in the older man falling backwards and hitting his head.
Police will also allege the 48-year-old woman has been complicit in providing authorities with incorrect information.
Both of the accused were known to the deceased man.
