A 28-year-old who killed another man by kicking him in the side of the head has been jailed for nine years.
Lloyd Deacon ruptured a blood vessel in Gary Bassett’s brain when he attacked him in Market Pavement, Basildon last July.
The victim was with a friend when Mr Bassett approached and started being aggressive. Deacon then kicked him in the head, knocking him unconscious and leaving irreparable damage.
Gary Bassett passed away in hospital two days later. Mr Deacon was found guilty of manslaughter at Chelmsford Crown Court.
