Man jailed 3 years and six months for killing another with log
A Myanmar national, 26, was jailed three years and six months on Monday morning for killing a compatriot with a wooden log.
Nay Aung, who was a seaman, had fought with Mr Ko Ko Maung, 51, at Penjuru Lane on May 29, 2013.
Mr Maung, who was an engineer of a vessel, had apparently confronted Aung at the premises of C & P Logistics Hub.
After a verbal exchange, Mr Maung took out a nunchaku and struck Aung.
Minutes later, Mr Maung again charged at Aung.
The latter picked up a wooden log and swung it at Mr Maung, striking him several times.
He was later found bleeding from several injuries and pronounced dead by paramedics at the scene.
