Arrest made in fatal fight at packing plant

LIBERAL, Kan. (AP) — Police in southwest Kansas have arrested a packing plant employee for the death of a co-worker after a fight last week.

Emergency crews found 25-year-old Abdukadir Mohamed Dahir unconscious Friday morning at the National Beef plant in Liberal. Dahir died Saturday at a Wichita hospital of what a preliminary autopsy showed was blunt force injury to his head.

A 31-year-old co-worker was arrested Tuesday by Liberal police on suspicion of second-degree murder. The case has been forwarded to the Seward County attorney.
