A teenage boy has been charged following the death of an 18-year-old in southern NSW.

A relative of the 18-year-old man alerted police after finding his body at a property on Henry Street, Corowa, at around 12.30pm (AEDT) on Saturday.

A crime scene was established as forensic officers scoured the property. Their investigations led to detectives arresting a 16-year-old boy at Corowa a few hours later.

It’s alleged the teenager and the man had been involved in an altercation inside a fast food outlet on Sanger Street, Corowa, around 9.30pm on Friday.

The teenager was charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm and was granted conditional bail ahead of his court appearance in Corowa Children’s Court on April 10.

A post mortem will be carried out on the man’s body and a report will be prepared for the coroner.
