Supreme Court rejects appeal by hunter who accidently shot and killed homeless man

21-09-2016

The country’s Supreme Court has rejected an appeal by Miroslav Kocián, a hunter who accidentally shot and killed a homeless man three years ago. Mr Kocián was sentenced to three years and two months in prison after a court originally ruled negligence had played a role. The hunter said he had mistaken the group of vagabonds in sleeping bags in a field for a deer. The Supreme Court heard the case in July but only released details of its decision now.
