A man who had his ears sliced off in a street attack has died.
Sajed Choudry also suffered a fractured skull in what police said was a "large-scale disturbance" on Rhyl Avenue in Blackburn on the night of 27 November.
The 43-year-old father of four had his ears reattached in hospital but died on Thursday, Lancashire Police said.
A 13-year old boy and three men - Rafaqat Ali, 38, Fazal Ilahi, 62, Sadaqat Ali, 36, from Blackburn - were earlier charged with attempted murder.
They are due to appear at Preston Crown Court on 17 December.
A post-mortem examination is due to be held to establish Mr Choudry's cause of death.
A 24-year-old man was also seriously injured during the disturbance and was recovering, police said.
Mr Choudry's family has asked for their privacy to be respected.
