Southern Telegraph - - Telegraph News - Shan­non Hamp­ton

A Madora Bay man has pleaded guilty to un­law­fully killing 27-year-old Ja­son Good­win in a “coward’s punch” at­tack at a Man­durah tav­ern last year.

Jake Ray­mond Mosley, 28, pleaded guilty to man­slaugh­ter last week when he ap­peared in Stir­ling Gar­dens Mag­is­trate’s Court.

Mr Good­win, a chef, was rushed to Royal Perth Hos­pi­tal with se­ri­ous head in­juries, in­clud­ing a frac­tured skull and se­vere bleed­ing on the brain, af­ter he was knocked out while play­ing pool at the Sil­ver Sands Tav­ern in Man­durah on Septem­ber 20. He died seven days later. Mosley was charged with caus­ing griev­ous bod­ily harm, but the charge was up­graded to man­slaugh­ter af­ter Mr Good­win’s death.

Meadow Springs woman Heather Mary McCor­mack was charged with be­ing an ac­ces­sory af­ter the fact to griev­ous bod­ily harm in re­la­tion to the as­sault.

She pleaded not guilty to the charge and is due to ap­pear in the District Court on Au­gust 25.

Mosley was re­manded in cus­tody and is due to be sen­tenced in the Supreme Court on De­cem­ber 20.
