Man jailed for NSW nurse's one-punch death

December 08, 2017

Teresita Manalad says her son had planned to become a psychiatrist to help people with addictions.

The first person charged under NSW's one punch-law has been jailed for at least eight years for killing a Sydney nurse outside a 21st birthday party in 2014.

Hugh Bacalla Garth was found guilty earlier this year of assault causing death while intoxicated after he punched a stranger, Raynor Manalad, 21, at Rooty Hill.

In the NSW District Court on Friday, Judge Antony Townsend jailed him for 10 years with a non-parole period of eight years.
