An eastern North Dakota man now faces a manslaughter charge after a weekend bar fight turned fatal. Cass County prosecutors have charged 25-year-old Jordan Pendleton of Horace with manslaughter and three counts of assault. Pendleton is accused of punching 31-year-old Marlin Klatt outside Big Erv’s Bar & Grill early Sunday morning. Klatt’s head hit the concrete. Klatt died Monday at a Fargo hospital. Investigators have not said what led up to the assault. Cass County Sheriff Jesse Jahner says Pendleton and Klatt knew each other. Pendleton remains in the Cass County jail, with bond set at $500,000.
