Man jailed for deadly one-punch attack at KFC
An alcohol-fuelled one-punch killer has been sentenced to eight years in prison for an attack on a man in a Queensland KFC car park.
Conrad Joseph Carter, 35, admitted to the manslaughter of Wayne Tolmie, 50, who died in hospital after being knocked to the ground in June 2016 at Morayfield, north of Brisbane.
Carter was sentenced in the Brisbane Supreme Court on Friday to eight years in prison. He will be eligible for parole after serving three years.

Soon after his death, Mr Tolmie's family and friends expressed shock and described him as "one of a kind."
Jennifer Bowden, the aunt of Mr Tolmie, said there had been "a lot of crying" after Mr Tolmie and another friend died on the same day.
"May they both be at peace now and neither will be forgotten," Ms Bowden wrote on Facebook.
