Red Deer RCMP have charged a man in the death of William Blaine Baker, who died after being dropped at hospital earlier this month, police said in a release Friday.

Baker, 47, was left at Red Deer Regional Hospital Feb. 13 and a Calgary autopsy on Tuesday determined his death was a homicide.

A 40-year-old man is facing a charge of second-degree murder.

He is scheduled to appear in a Red Deer courtroom Monday.
