A 23-year-old man was arrested for murder after a guest in his Rancho Penasquitos home was knocked unconscious during a fight and never awoke, San Diego police said.

SDPD received a call at about 4:15 p.m. Wednesday from the father of Wyatt Austin Lane who said his son had been in a fight with a man, who never regained consciousness.

Officers arrived at the home in the 12500 block of Darkwood Road and found the man dead in a bedroom, SDPD said. It was not clear how long he had been unconscious for.

SDPD did not provide any details about the victim. He was described solely as a guest.

Lane was arrested and booked into San Diego Central Jail where he faces one count of first-degree murder. He is scheduled in court on Jan. 8.

SDPD's homicide detectives are investigating the incident and are in the process of collecting evidence and conducting interviews.
