A CAGE FIGHTER has today been sent to jail for 10 years after being found guilty of brutal killing a Southampton dad in an alleyway.

Damon Wright was found guilty of the manslaughter of Kevin Wyeth after hitting him with such “severe force” that his face shattered and his brain was left “significantly damaged”.

The 32-year-old was cleared of the charge of murder by a majority decision from the jury but they did not accept his claim that he acted in self-defence when he viciously attacked the Saints groundsman.

During sentencing, Wright showed no emotion as he stood in the dock dressed in a dark suit and tie.

Sentencing, judge Guy Boney Mr Wyeth "never stood a chance" when he was attacked by the professional cage fighter.

He said: "I have no doubt that your intention was violence and the extent of violence was illustrated in the nature of the injuries and of death.

Daily Echo: Cage fighter guilty of killing Southampton dadDamon Wright

"You are an experienced cage fighter and I have some experience, quite enough in your cage fighting career that you knew what you were doing, that it was carrying a risk of serious injury or death even if you did not intend any of those circumstances."

During the trial Wright, who is trained in eight different martial arts disciplines, admitted that he had delivered the blows that killed the dad-of-three, saying that he threw with “everything” he had.

The post mortem revealed that Kevin suffered “appalling” injuries, including multiple fractures to his face, including his jaw in pieces on both sides and even the small bone at the base of his tongue was broken.

Pathologist Amanda Jeffery gave evidence stating the lack of defensive injuries to Kevin suggested he was rendered unconscious early on in the beating last August.

Wright took more than two hours before he called an ambulance for his victim - at first calling a taxi to the spot where he had left him unconscious in the hope they would find him and avoid directly connecting him to it.

While paramedics they battled in vain in the early hours of August 24 to save Kevin, Wright was heading to Poole, where he was caught on CCTV demonstrating what he has just done to Kevin to his friend.

Very lucky to have got off with manslaughter from reading the Echo reports. Perhaps the jury heard and saw things not available to the rest of us.

Regardless of murder or manslaughter that sentence is pathetic. It is an insult to the family who are now suffering the loss of a loved one.

I didn't need to be there. I think it's pretty clear to all who have been following this case, that Wright set out that night, to cause harm to Kevin Wyeth.

You can't convince me otherwise, that it was a coincidence he just bumped into him that evening.

The bloke's a calculating thug and as such, should have been sentenced for a much longer spell. IMO

In a way you are correct, we only know what we have read. That doesn't take away the fact the sentence was minimal.

The fact he went equipped wearing gloves, he showed no emotion etc. Surely you would agree the sentence takes the pee?

I agree with you. Why was he wearing his gloves unless it was planned.
We did not attend the trial. We didn't see all the information. There was history between these two. Wright was dating Kevin's ex-partner at the time of the attack for a start. Also, the victim, Kevin, had been violent in the past, enough to warrant his own article in the Echo (for throwing a bar stool at his girlfriend, and slapping another woman around the back of the head and hit her with a stool, back on 5 Apr 2009). He still did not deserve to die, or receive such a horrific beating (and people can change in the 4 years between that incident and the one that took his life, the example is just to highlight that not all the facts of the trial have been included here).

However, I agree that 10 years for taking a life in this manner is pathetic. That family have had something taken from that is irreplaceable. My sympathies are with them. There is very little deterent for violent crime in this country.

I do agree the sentence is a joke, yes. I'm not convinced a murder took place, let alone a premeditated one. I don't know for sure, but neither does our doctor friend above. This is why we have a trial by jury, rather than having one person decide on guilt.

I believe he will have to serve 6 yrs before parole and if he gets parole the rest of his sentence will be added to the 4yrs so he would be on licence for 7yrs 8 months, but I was told he would not get parole the first time with his violent past, but it will be reviewed every year
