A man who Henderson police believe died after getting into a brawl with another man was identified.

The Clark County coroner's office released Friday the name of 47-year-old Christopher Florer. A cause and manner of his death were pending.

Police said Charles E. Pierce was arrested early Wednesday after he contacted dispatchers regarding a fight he had with a man he did not know. Pierce, as police said, told 911 operators the other person in the fight was not moving.

Officers located a body of a man in his 30s or 40s near some bushes in the 100 block of West Basic Road, according to police.

Police were still looking into whether the suspect knew the victim before the incident.

On Thursday, Pierce had a murder charge read to him in Henderson Justice Court. There was no bail set.
