Jefferson Wilbur, who has been in a Sioux Falls hospital undergoing medical care since he was discovered unresponsive with serious head injuries in an alley in the 200 block of Grand Avenue Sept. 1, passed away Sunday.

Chase Foote, 22, of Spencer, was charged with willful injury, a class C felony, for his alleged role in an altercation with Wilbur. He will now await a decision from the Clay County Attorney's office regarding any change in the charges against him.

A release from the Spencer Police Department indicated their agency and the county attorney are "awaiting autopsy results as the case is still ongoing."
