A year or so ago, petroleum trader Jeremy Aylmer punched IT executive Charles Cox outside London nightclub Floridita, over a lady. As of last month he was facing manslaughter charges because Cox was knocked unconscious, never came to, and died 20 months later. Today, a court informed him it's all good.
Aylmer claimed he acted in self-defence and a jury took just 32 minutes to acquit him of manslaughter at Inner London Crown Court. Aylmer, who works for oil giant Chevron, insisted Mr Cox was the 'aggressor' during the altercation in the early hours of November 23, 2007. He said Mr Cox had pushed him and swore at him in a row over a woman.
