The man wanted in the death of a London man on the weekend has turned himself in.

Robert Ashley Williams, 35, was charged with second-degree murder in the death of Dereck Szaflarski, 27, who died early Saturday after a fight on a city sidewalk at about 2:30 a.m.

Williams arrived at London police headquarters at about 5:30 p.m. today and was taken into custody.

Defence lawyer Jim Dean said Williams will make his first court appearance Thursday morning.

Szarflarski died following a clash near Richmond and Piccadilly streets. Police arrived at about 2:30 a.m. to find him seriously hurt. He died later in hospital.

Police said a suspect left in a white car. It was found north of the city.
