A man has been jailed for three years for manslaughter after the death of a man in Southwark.
Jose Adolfo Licona Valladares, 25, of Brixton Hill on Friday appeared at Inner London Crown Court where he was sentenced.
It comes after 45-year-old Santiago Lenin Borja Donoso died from a head injury on March 31 this year.
The pair had an altercation outside of a South London restaurant in the Old Kent Road on February 23.
Valladares had initially been charged with grievous bodily harm, which then changed to manslaughter following Santiago’s death.
He pleaded guilty to manslaughter on Tuesday, August 11.
Detective Sergeant David Brooks, of the Met’s Specialist Crime South, said: “This was a very tragic incident in which a man needlessly lost his life.
“This altercation meant one man very sadly lost his life. Another will now spend time behind bars.”
