Mr Becker said Gelling regretted the crass comments made in the police interview about not caring for Mr Marginov's welfare.
He said: "The defendant is extremely remorseful. He regrets and is ashamed of the comments he made to the police and was distressed when he learned the life support machine had been switched off."Yes, of course he is. That's why he had to be handcuffed to a security guard after attempting to escape the court.
After pleading guilty to the crime, Gelling was jailed for six years, with an extended four years on licence.
This type of sentence means he will serve a minimum of two thirds of the prison term - four years - behind bars, before a parole board will consider whether it is safe to release him.What are the odds..?
