Police say Quarles got into a violent fight with 86-year-old Charles Fields at the victim's home on Maiden Lane back in October of 2016. News10NBC is told the two were friends.

Fields died from his injuries three weeks later.  

Quarles was arrested on an unrelated burglary charge less than 24 hours after the fight.
