Man jailed for fatal punch

A man who delivered a fatal punch to a man during an argument in the southern Perth suburb of Yangebup in 2008 has been jailed for one year.
Grant Richardson died from bleeding on the brain after his life support was switched off a day after he was punched by 21-year-old Michael Stephen Barrett.
The Perth District Court heard Barrett's actions had arisen out of several misunderstandings, but he had deliberately and forcefully hit Mr Richardson, who was aged 40.
