A drunk thug whose young victim died five years after a brutal attack was jailed for culpable homicide today.
Jason Gilmour, 29, repeatedly kicked and stamped on Scott Hepburn.
It left the dad-of-one brain-damaged, paralysed from the neck and only able to communicate by blinking.
He died five years later of the injuries aged just 23, Daily Record says.
But today violent Gilmour was caged for four years and six months after a jury convicted him of culpable homicide.
Sentencing the yob at the High Court in Glasgow, Judge Lady Stacey said: "What happened that day to Mr Hepburn was shocking behaviour on your part.
"You do appreciate how shocking it was and told a social worker you took responsibility for what you did that day in 2012.
"The sentence would have been 10 years on the basis a young man lost his life. You have already served five years and four months of that."
Jurors were told Gilmour launched the graphic attack in Ardrossan, Ayrshire, on June 11, 2012, and he suffered the traumatic wounds.
Scott was so badly hurt he had to be cared for at a nursing home in Glasgow, Scotland.
