AN MP whose dad was killed with a single punch has set up a parliamentary group to look at sentencing in such attacks.
Tory Dehenna Davison was just 13 when Dominic was killed in a Sheffield pub aged 35.
The punch caused an artery to burst and he died almost instantly.
The Bishop Auckland MP recalled her family’s horror when his attacker was let out of jail after just 18 months.
She said: “Alongside trying to process the grief and shock of losing Dad, there was the pressure and uncertainty of the case, which ultimately left us with a burning sense of injustice.”
She has now set up the All Party Parliamentary Group for One-Punch Assaults, which will look at “fairer” sentencing.
Its key role will be to make a formal inquiry into sentencing and to make a report with proposals to make sure the courts “provide a fairer sense of justice”.
Ms Davison said the group will also look at educating people about the true impact of violence.
