Man dies after fight in Spring Valley; suspect arrested

Posted: Updated:

SPRING VALLEY (CNS) - A man was in custody Wednesday on suspicion of killing a 53-year-old man in a fight in Spring Valley.

John Guy Durham, 55, was arrested Tuesday afternoon and booked into San Diego Central Jail on suspicion of one count of murder in the death of Jay Newman, according to sheriff's homicide Lt. Larry Nesbit and the San Diego County Medical Examiner's Office.

The coroner, however, did not immediately report Newman's death as a homicide. An autopsy was pending to determine the official cause of death.

Shortly before 4 p.m. Tuesday, deputies were called to the 3600 block of South Cordoba Avenue to break up a fight between the two men. They found bystanders performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation on Newman, Nesbit said.

Paramedics took Newman to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Durham was arrested without further incident.
