“ONE-PUNCH MANSLAUGHTER” INVOLVING NON-SPONTANEOUS GRATUITOUS STREET VIOLENCE INFLICTED ON INNOCENT VICTIM

The eight-year custodial term of an extended sentence imposed for an offence of “one-punch manslaughter” was manifestly excessive and was reduced to six years, notwithstanding the fact that the offence involved non-spontaneous gratuitous street violence inflicted on a wholly innocent victim.
