Ahu Stanley Taylor
Taylor had drunk alcohol and taken drugs prior to the assault and had little recollection of what happened. But based on the CCTV video evidence he had seen, he admitted intending to cause Vincent serious harm.
However, he denied he intended to kill Vincent during the prolonged assault, in which he kicked and stomped Vincent's head while he lay on the floor defenceless.
On importance was the prolonged length of the attack - four minutes and 15 seconds - and the severity of the injuries sustained by Vincent.
Taylor had no motive to try and kill Vincent and had no reason to want him dead.
