Ashley Foster has been convicted of the manslaughter of Alan Greaves, but there was confusion in court when the clerk only asked the jury foreman whether he was guilty of murder.
When the foreman said "not guilty" there were celebrations from Foster's family.
But as Mr Greaves's widow Maureen looked shocked and confused, the jury foreman, who had already been asked to sit, shouted "but guilty of manslaughter".
At this point Foster's girlfriend Natalie Evers burst into tears and ran from the court screaming.
