Two Punch Wisbech Killer Jailed
John Anthony Muffett, 34, of Pickards Way, Wisbech, chased after 49-year-old Peter Kofie after seeing him in Churchill Road, Wisbech, at about 9pm on Sunday 8th August last year.
He caught up with him in Norwich Road where he punched him in the head twice, knocking him to the pavement.
The assault caused a rupture to the artery in Mr Kofie's neck and he died a short while after being taken to hospital by paramedics.
Following investigations by detectives, Muffett was arrested on the morning of August 12th at his Wisbech home.
He initially claimed to have acted in self-defence but pleaded guilty to manslaughter on January 25th
Muffett was sentenced at Cambridge Crown Court on Friday (March 4th).
Detective Chief Inspector George Barr, who led the investigation, said: "Muffett did not intend to kill but the violence he used always ran the risk of causing serious harm."
"I hope the sentence handed down gives some comfort to Mr Kofie's family and friends who can now move on knowing that justice has been done."
Independent police investigators say officers, who had spoken to a drunk driver in Stamford minutes before he died, were not to blame for his death.
South Lincolnshire farms have been hit hard by rural crime this year, with more than £2million worth of damage done since January.
