Shanakee Pub Killing - Bouncer Cleared
31 year old man found not guilty of murder
A former nightclub bouncer has been cleared of killing a drinker at the Shanakee pub in Ealing.
Keith Stewart, 31, from Windsor Road was alleged to have punched 52-year-old Seamus Gill, from West Ealing so hard he fell to the ground unconscious 'like a ton of bricks' and then stamped on him as he walked away.
Mr Gill died in hospital on December 9 last year,
Stewart told the court that he had acted in self defence after getting into an argument with Mr Gill's son.
He was found not guilty of murder and manslaughter after a trial at the Old Bailey.
Stewart was also acquitted of causing actual bodily harm to Mr Gill's son Fergal and assaulting his friend.
