Two Corinthians supporters face possible manslaughter charges in Bolivia
According to information published in Bolivian newspaper La Patria, two of the 12 Corinthians fans currently being held in Bolivia over the death of a 14-year-old San José will face manslaughter charges over the incident.
Kevin Douglas Beltrán Espada was struck by a naval flare during the game in Oruro this week, with his tragic death leading to the banning of Corinthians' supporters for the remainder of the competition.
The twelve fans held by Bolivia, though, are likely to face criminal charges over the incident and, it appears that two of the party will face possible charges over the child's death.
The judge conducting the follow-up to the incident announced that "the investigations that we are undertaking will determine if the Brazilians are responsible or not for the death of a 14-year-old boy."
Corinthians, who helped fund the supporters' travel to Bolivia, have announced their attention to appeal the punishment handed to them by Conmebol on Thursday.
