COLBERT — A fist fight between friends at a KOA Kampground in southeast Oklahoma left one Louisiana man dead and another in jail this weekend, Colbert police Capt. Mike Graham said.

Don Mancil, 43, beat Charles Thomas Randal, 48, with his fists and stomped on him in a fight over a woman Friday night, Graham said. Randal later died at a Texas hospital.

The men, from Glenmora, La., were construction workers in town to work on a pipeline, Graham said. They were longtime friends and traveled together for work, usually staying at campgrounds in separate trailers.

Officers booked Mancil into the Bryan County jail on a manslaughter complaint, a jail spokesman said. No bail has been set. has disabled the comments for this article.
