A SUPREME Court jury has found a Wycheproof man not guilty of manslaughter.
Dane Edward McLennan, 28, was on trial after he was charged with causing the death of 56-year-old John Durie.
The court heard on August 30, 2019, Mr McLennan and Mr Durie were at a Wycheproof golf club after attending a day-long tournament.
The pair were playing a game of pool that evening when, in the context of "mucking around", Mr Durie either kicked or punched Mr McLennan in the stomach or groin area.
The prosecution alleged Mr McLennan was embarrassed and then angry, so he lashed out at Mr Durie and punched him in the head.
The court heard Mr Durie immediately collapsed and did not regain consciousness. He later died at the scene.
The jury deliberated for about two days before delivering their not guilty verdict.
Mr McLennan was discharged and free to go.
