A garage worker, who killed a fellow-employee in an alcohol-fuelled rage during a wages row, has been jailed for seven years.
Ukraine-born Pavel Dunanov, 31, (pictured) of Spur Road, Isleworth inflicted fatal blunt force injuries to the head of Polish 29 year-old Piotr Maculewicz.
He was convicted at the Old Bailey of the manslaughter of Mr. Maculewicz, who he killed at the garage in Sulgrave Gardens, Sulgrave Road, Hammersmith.
The pair had been drinking whiskey and coke and the row began when window fitter Mr. Maculewicz began quizzing the defendant as to why he earned more money than he did.
Detective Inspector John Smith, of the Homicide and Serious Crime Command, said: “Mr. Maculewicz was killed by a work colleague at the construction garage they worked at, following a violent alcohol fuelled argument.
“The evidence which was bought before the court against Dunanov was overwhelming, and I am pleased that he has been held to account for his terrible actions.”
During the two week trial the court heard that at a 7:15pm on March 11, last year police were called to a man found unconscious in the forecourt area of a garage.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
A post-mortem at Fulham Mortuary on March 13 did not establish a formal cause of death, however further examinations indicated Mr. Maculewicz had suffered a number of blunt force trauma injuries to the head.
