A sixty-eight-year-old man charged with aggravated assault is dead.

The charge against Torben Lange was abated on Monday because he died while out on bail.

“Mr. Lange has passed away and it was not in a suspicious manner,” said RCMP Sgt. Craig Massey.

No further details of his death, including the time and date, are being released.

Police responded to a report of a domestic assault at 370 Elizabeth Rd at 10:15 p.m. on Wed. Oct. 12. Three people, including Lange were taken to hospital with serious, but non life threatening injuries, described as “puncture wounds” by Massey.

Lange had been out on a cash deposit bail of $10,000 since mid-October.
