Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - News - BY JOHN KELLY

A THUG who kicked a stranger to death has been sen­tenced to 10 and a half years in jail.

Rio Liburd, 32, was high on booze and drugs dur­ing her un­pro­voked at­tack on al­co­holic David Bax­ter, 59.

He was tar­geted in his neigh­bour’s flat in Hud­der­s­field, West Yorks, in Septem­ber last year.

BOASTS Liburd scoffed over at­tack be­fore the fa­tal as­sault. She had asked him: “How are you liv­ing like this, you f***ing tramp?”

Mr Bax­ter died in hos­pi­tal two days later. Liburd, from Kirklees, bragged on so­cial me­dia about leav­ing him bleed­ing and un­con­scious. At Leeds Crown Court, she ad­mit­ted man­slaugh­ter.

Mr Jus­tice Laven­der told her: “He was, sadly, an al­co­holic, which ren­dered him un­able to de­fend him­self against your at­tack and more sus­cep­ti­ble to the fa­tal in­jury.”
