Man charged with murder after foe falls from bridge in fight

WINOOSKI, Vt. (AP) — A Vermont man has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder in the death of a man who fell from a bridge while they were fighting.

Twenty-year-old Joshua Granger, of Winooski, is charged in the death of 20-year-old Jared Streeter, of Milton. Streeter fell to his death on Saturday from a railroad bridge that connects Winooski and Burlington.

Police received 911 calls on Saturday evening reporting that a man had fallen from the bridge, which is commonly known as the Blue Bridge.

The Burlington Free Press reports that witnesses told detectives the two men were fighting on the bridge before one fell. Granger turned himself in to police after fleeing the scene.

He was being held without bail at the Chittenden Regional Correctional Facility on Monday.
