A MAN has admitted killing "loving and kind" Andrew Young following an incident in Charminster last year.

Lewis Gill, 20, of no fixed abode, pleaded guilty to the manslaughter of Mr Young, who had Asperger's Syndrome, at Winchester Crown Court this afternoon.

The 40-year-old died following an altercation outside Tesco Express in Charminster Road on Saturday, November 9.

Gill, who was arrested in Croydon, wore a grey Nike sweatshirt for the plea and case management hearing, and was remanded into custody.

He will be sentenced at the same court on February 21 after a pre-sentence report is prepared.

Kerry Maylin, prosecuting, said CCTV of the incident will be shown to the court when Gill is sentenced.

His Honour Judge Guy Boney QC told Gill: "You have been wisely advised and accepted that advice [to plead guilty to manslaughter]."

The defendant gave a deep sigh before being led back into custody after the brief hearing.

Following his death, Mr Young’s mother Pamela, who lives in Holbury Close, Bournemouth, called her son “loving and clever”.

She told the Daily Echo that she had sat with her son at Southampton General Hospital when he died.

Mr Young was a former Bournemouth School pupil, and spoke a number of languages, including Arabic, Russian and Ukrainian.

He used to work for Asda at Castlepoint shopping centre after leaving university and was once a member of the naval section of the Combined Cadet Force.

Mr Young was also a member of St Edmund Campion Church in Bournemouth, attending mass every Sunday.

Pamela attended the court to see Gill accept responsibility for the death of her son.

The culprit should be gassed immediately. But as usual he will be out in about 7 -8 years if not before. Just wait and see. Don't you just love the British judicial system.!!

Sick and tired of thugs killing people and getting away with manslaughter. If you attack someone and kill them, it's MURDER. End of.

I did not know about this case until now. It is such a sad story to read and I am glad some justice has been done over the whole incident! I feel this man will need counselling to make sure he does not pose any harm to the public in the future.

Of course it is tragic when any person dies before their time, but as Christians who love Jesus, we know that at whatever age we "depart from the body", we shall be with the Lord in Heaven, which is "better by far" (Philippians 1:23).

Andrew is in Heaven, where there is no Asperger's Syndrome and none of the other suffering we see on Earth, and I shall see him there again one day.

If you kill someone it's murder, so many people get the lesser charge by pleading they didn't intend to do it etc..

The system is a joke! He should have got life. If he didn't intend to kill him he shouldn't of hit him. Hope they give you a hard time in jail you piece of low life crap.

You do of course realise that all the members of his family and his friends will be following this site?
They are looking for justice and reasons for his death.
Then a scumbag like you tries to push his own agenda.
Were you trying to be funny?
You missed BIG TIME!
You owe those people an apology.
Over to you, creep!

Wish the Echo would run this story (about a homeless man kicked to death) every now and then to make sure everybody knows who these a'holes are.

"lest we forget"

Ralph was 'Ralph' and was a nice guy.

Unlike the people who caused his death (which was also not deemed to be murder even though they sustained him to a severe beating and dumped a trolly on him as he was lying there struggling to breath with broken ribs).

Their reason? He said he didn't have any tobacco to give them.

I wish their photo's were a weekly feature in this paper.

Listen THICKO, it has nothing to do with religion, what you wrote was an attack on people who lost someone close (not you and your nether regions), but you are too dense to understand that some people don't need a lecture on their beliefs. These people had a loss, the last thing they need is for some low-life to crawl out from under a rock and attack them.
So I suggest that you go back to your self gratification and leave DECENT people alone!

such a sad story. I am sure that Andrew served me at Castlepoint in the past.
My heart goes out to his family who must be devastated. If you meet someone whose social skills may not be brilliant....maybe a bit awkward and shy,rather clumsy or maybe they look a bit eccentric or have an unusual way of speaking or whatever, they may have this form of high functioning Autism. My son has the same and my heart is in my boots so often when people are unnecessarily unkind to him. Think before you criticise a stranger who is a little different because they are doing their best. Hats off to Asda who sometimes employ people who have this kind of difficulty.
