Greek Australian Melbourne man jailed for nine years for killing innocent stranger over stolen DJ equipment

Tony Panagiotou

Tony Panagiotou, 59, was sentenced to nine years behind bars after pleading guilty in the Supreme Court of Victoria to the manslaughter of Duane Hutchings at Oakleigh East almost three years ago.

Mr Hutchings, 46, was visiting a friend who had stolen the expensive gear when he was fatally shot by Panagiotou.

The father-of-six was innocent and had nothing to do with the theft.

With time served, Panagiotou will be eligible for parole in just over three years.
