Mum's anger at sentence for Rhyl man's killer


THE mum of a man who died after "ferocious blows" to his head outside a pub, last night branded her son’s killer a coward.
Tearful Angela Witherspoon expressed anger for the man who took the life of dad-of-two Jonathan Bennett in a violent attack.
The grandmother said she has to live with the horrific CCTV image of the fatal punch which plays over in her mind, as she told of her disgust at the "pitiful" three-year sentence imposed last week on the thug who did it.
Mr Bennett, 40, from Rhyl suffered two fierce strikes to the head in the brutal assault outside the town’s Grapevine pub in Water Street in February.
He was knocked unconscious by 45-year-old Thomas Bryan and died in hospital 13 days later after never coming round.
Experts said he was struck with such ferocious blows that he was probably out cold before hitting the ground.
