A 23-year-old Chippenham man has been jailed for 18 years after pleading guilty to the murder of Russell Nixon.
Russell, aged 38, of Derby Close, Chippenham, was killed in London Road in the early hours of 10 May 2017.
Matthew Chapman, of Wood Lane, was charged with his murder and pleaded guilty at Bristol Crown Court at an earlier hearing. He has been sentenced to 18 years imprisonment.
At approximately 12.20am on 10 May, officers were called to an initial report from members of the public who had been woken by a disturbance in the street.
When officers attended, they found Russell lying on the ground with significant head injuries.
He was pronounced deceased by paramedics at the scene.
Within an hour, officers carrying out an area search were able to locate Chapman nearby and he was arrested.

The CEO of a an international conservation and animal rights organisation has told ITV News that lessons must be learnt from the tragedy of Rosa King's death.
The 33 year old zoo keeper from Chippenham, described as the "shining light" of her workplace, died in a "freak accident" at Hamerton Zoo Park in Cambridgeshire.
Will Travers of the Born Free Foundation says that while speculation about the tragedy is "not a good idea", all zoos in the UK should review their safety protocols.
Mr Travers also urged that the tiger involved should not be put down.
I don't think the tiger should be destroyed, I think that would be easy knee-jerk reaction to a tragedy like this.
I'm sure no one at the zoo thinks the tiger should be destroyed.
