IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) — A 22-year-old Idaho Falls man wanted in connection with the beating death of another man has been taken into custody.

Bonneville County Prosecuting Attorney Daniel Clark says Tanner Cox turned himself in Monday afternoon.

Cox is facing a charge of voluntary manslaughter after police say he punched 36-year-old Josh Olzak of Idaho Falls one time in the face on May 9 and caused fatal injuries.

Olzak died on May 11.

Police say they're still seeking information about others seen with Cox at the Peppertree Lounge in Idaho Falls on May 8 or early May 9.

Police are also looking for a white Dodge Durango and a light-colored vehicle that could be a Subaru Impreza or Volkswagon Jetta.

Cox is being held in the Bonneville County Jail on a $100,000 bond.
