A man has pleaded guilty following the death of a man in Burton in 2019.
Davyd Florian Lincan, 23, from Chartist Road, Birmingham, pleaded guilty to the manslaughter of Stan Bacioiu at Stafford Crown Court today (Tuesday 22 June).
The 44-year-old, originally from Romania, died on 1 December 2019, following an assault on Uxbridge Street on Friday 22 November.
Police were called to reports of men fighting outside an address at around 9.30pm.
A fight involving around 14 people started inside, before spilling out onto the street, where Mr Bacioiu was injured.
Crews from West Midlands Ambulance Service attended the scene and Mr Bacioiu was taken to Nottingham Queen's Hospital, where he eventually died, in critical condition.
The senior investigating officer, Detective Inspector Zoe Kelsall, of the Major Investigations Department, said: “This was a tragic case. Stan was a completely innocent bystander and not involved in the fight.
“Lincan fled the country after the incident and it took some time to locate and extradite him.
“I’d like to thank Stan’s family for their support during this investigation. His widow remains in the country alone. Stan was her only family in the UK. Her life has been changed forever.
Lincan will be sentenced on 30 July at Stafford Crown Court.
