A Batley man has been jailed for life for causing the death of a man after he viciously assaulted him with a hammer.
The incident happened on 3 January this year after a man was found with a serious head injury at Highfield Court in Batley.
The victim, 46-year-old Firoz Ibrahim Pargarkar, was rushed to hospital, but sadly died as a result of his injuries on 24 February.
Abdul Kapde approached police officers on the day of the incident admitting what he had done. Mr Pargarkar had been repeatedly struck with a hammer in his home.
Abdul Kapde, aged 49, of Highfield Court, Batley was arrested and subsequently charged with murder.
He was found guilty by a jury following a five-day trial at Leeds Crown Court and has now been sentenced today (20 August) for life with a minimum term of 14 years in prison.
