Brisbane man jailed for fatal punch on father

It took just 10 seconds for Morgan Alexander Isles-English to end his estranged father’s life with a single blow to the head.

With time served in pre-sentence custody, Isles-English, 27, will now spend at least the next five years in prison.

As she sentenced him on Wednesday, Justice Soraya Ryan said the troubled son didn’t mean to kill his father, Mark English, in July 2016.

“It’s not suggested the punch itself involved particular force but it caused the deceased to fall backwards and his head landed on the concrete,” she told the Brisbane Supreme Court.
