Witnesses

Kent police said witnesses said Cottrell punched Holmes in his home four days before his death, knocking him down.

Witnesses said Mr. Holmes refused hospital treatment and remained at the hotel until his death.

Det Cohn Leah Roberts of the Kent and Essex Serious Crimes Investigation Authority said it was “a tragic incident that shows how violent incidents too easily can have serious or fatal consequences.”

She said she hoped the verdict would help Mr. Holmes’s family and friends come to terms with his death and that Cottrell “will use his time in prison to reflect on his actions.”

Royal Court

He pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the Royal Court of Maidstone and was sentenced to five years in prison last Friday (October 22).

Detective Constable Leah Roberts of the Kent and Essex Serious Crimes Directorate said: “This is a tragic incident that shows how violent incidents can all too easily have serious or fatal consequences.

“I hope that the verdict will help Mr. Holmes’s family and friends come to terms with his death, and I hope this perpetrator uses his time in prison to reflect on his actions on the day of the attack.”
