Teen Sentenced 10 Years for Deadly Punch

Teen Sentenced 10 Years for Deadly Punch
A 14-year-old Fort Worth boy has been sentenced to 10 years in a juvenile jail for killing a stranger with a single unprovoked punch.

State District Judge Jean Boyd sentenced the boy Thursday.

The teen, who is not being identified because he is a juvenile, admitted to a manslaughter charge earlier this year following the October attack on 40-year-old Mark Gregory.

A statement from the Tarrant County District Attorney's Office says the boy and two friends hopped out of a car that night when they saw Gregory walking.

The punch knocked the 106-pound Gregory down and he hit his head on the pavement. He died two days later.
