A man who repeatedly stamped on a homeless man’s head because he was in love with his girlfriend has been jailed for two years.
Shaun Gregory, 37, attacked the victim outside the The Springs social housing, where they both lived, in Victoria Road, Cambridge, at about 11.20am on December 22.
The victim was taken to hospital with serious injuries and later discharged himself, but two weeks later died after being readmitted to hospital.
A post-mortem enquiry revealed he died as a result of complications arising from an infection to his lungs but there was no causal link to the assault.
The court heard Gregory, who claimed to be in love with the victim’s girlfriend, pushed him to the ground and then punched and kicked him several times in the back and face as he tried to get up.
