Authorities say they've identified the body of a man that was found on the Onondaga Indian Nation in central New York.

The Onondaga County Sheriff's Office says the body is that of 33-year-old Carl Kettle of Salamanca, in Cattaraugus County.

Sheriff's detectives say Kettle's body was found around Saturday morning in a vacant lot in the hamlet of Nedrow, just south of Syracuse.

Police later that day charged 22-year-old Jacob Homer of Syracuse with manslaughter in connection with Kettle's death. Police said the two men got into a fight but haven't said how Kettle died.

Homer is being held on $250,000 cash bail.
