`A young Brisbane IT specialist who worked as a part-time nightclub bouncer for extra cash has been jailed for seven years for killing a drunk patron with a single kick. [..]
Coddington was overhead to say to Hutchings: “I fucked your mother.”
It was alleged that when Coddington repeated the insult Hutchings kicked him with a fast, sharp blow to the head.
Coddington, who had a blood alcohol reading of 0.29 per cent, died a short time later of a brain haemorrhage.
Hutchings has maintained he only hit Coddington on the shoulder in a bid to subdue him, and the kick did not have enough force to do any damage.’
