A former Thai Boxing world champion has been jailed for 12 years for the manslaughter of Scots ex-serviceman Charles McInally.
Troy Ktori, 27, was accused of murdering Mr McInally, 55, at the former soldier’s Birmingham home last year.
But following a week-long trial at Birmingham Crown Court the martial arts expert, of Shenstone Road, Edgbaston, Birmingham, was cleared of murder and convicted of manslaughter.
A three times world champion in his youth, Ktori stabbed the ex-Royal Signal Regiment soldier through the throat after an afternoon of drinking and taking cocaine.
He claimed he was acting in self-defence.
Jailing him for 12 years, with an extended five years on licence, Mr Justice Neil Garnham told Ktori; “You have a temper that is made worse by drink and drugs, both of which a abuse regularly.
“You behaviour demonstrates when irritated by others you will resort to violence .
“You do not act in a moment of red mist but in a collected, calm, determined manner.
“You are a dangerous man Mr Ktori.”
