Murder charge for St. Cloud man who threw single fatal punch

The man accused of a one-punch manslaughter has walked free from court after the jury found him not guilty. Entrance to the High Court in Auckland Photo: Carlos Pula stood with his head bowed in the dock as the unanimous verdict was delivered at the High Court in Auckland today. Mr Pula's lawyers said it was dark, everyone had been drinking and there's doubt over who threw the fatal punch. In her closing yesterday, the Crown prosecutor Fiona Culliney told the jury in her closing address that despite Mr Sharma being punched in the early hours of the morning, two witnesses are clear about what they saw.

The first was woken by his cousin calling out: He grabbed a jumper and headed outside. It was dark but the security light was on. Ms Culliney said Mr Pula had just been involved in a fracas with another man. Daniel Ruka saw him walk past Mr Sharma. And he sees the deceased step slightly back, peraps trying to let him through unobstructed, and he sees that angry man swing at Mr Sharma and hit him. Mr Ruka saw the man tie his long hair up in a man-bun as he walked away - a compelling detail that Ms Culliney said added weight to his evidence.

He repeated a number of times the way the images replay in his mind and that the incident has effected his whole life. And he took it out on the wrong guy. That's what happened. Mr Pula's lawyer Mark Edgar said the Crown's two eye witnesses didn't hang around to talk to the police and fled the scene. So, you think about that issue of sobriety when you consider a witness' account, as to it's accuracy as to the recall. He also spoke of the darkness and shaddows at the scene which would make it difficult for any of the witnesses to see who threw the punch.

Mr Edgar also questioned whether the witnesses felt loyal to one side and had changed their evidence accordingly. New Zealand RSS. Follow RNZ News.
