    That is stupid. Unless they can prove the injury from being punched caused death they have no case. Even knowing a guy had a bum ticker nobody could expect a guy to have a heart attack after being punched. It can only be murder if the guy had intentions of killing guy #2...

    How could they possibly prove that guy #2 wasn't about to have a heart attack anyways?

    I dunno. I think they could get him for manslaughter. How would you feel if you were guy (2)'s wife? Interesting situation.

    I think they could get him for assault...which is what it was. Involuntary manslaughter maybe...

    Pretty hard to assume a punch to the head could cause death from a heart attack. I sympathise with the dead guys family, but realistically anything could have triggered the heart attack if the punch did. He could just as easily of died after an argument with his wife later the same day...
