A jealous boyfriend was arrested on a charge of manslaughter after killing a man by punching him in the face, according to police in the United Kingdom.
Now, 21-year-old Cortney Batchelor of Dunstable, has been sentenced to serve four years in prison after being convicted of manslaughter in connection with the death of 24-year-old Tomas Juska.
According to the police investigation, the two men, who did not know each other, were out enjoying a Saturday night at Club Cookies.
Batchelor's new girlfriend was working behind the bar, when Juska, who was drunk, was chatting her up. Batchelor became agitated and confronted the drunk man who gave the woman his phone number.
Batchelor then punched him with such force that his legs crumpled beneath him. His head then hit the ground with a sickening thud, resulting in the catastrophic injuries that caused his death.
Batchelor claimed that he believed he was about to be punched, and was acting in self defense. He was found guilty by a jury of manslaughter.
Batchelor's girlfriend had stood by him, and is now expecting his child.
