A Wichita man has been charged with second degree murder after an assault victim died at a hospital.

35-year-old Steven Speakman made his first appearance in Sedgwick County District Court on Tuesday, and his bond was set at $250,000.   His next court appearance will be September 19th.

Speakman was being held in jail since the August 21st assault in northeast Wichita.  33-year-old Haley Collins of Bel Aire was beaten during a fight in a parking lot at 21st and Rock Road.   He died of his injuries just over two weeks later.
