A judge has handed down a 20-year prison term in connection with a deadly assault outside of a Kalihi bar.

Prosecutors say Tevita Aholelei, 21, punched Solomone Niusini, 26, outside of Da Kine Sports Bar in December 2011. Niusini then fell backwards, hit his head on the ground, and died an hour later at the hospital. Niusini was Aholelei's Rugby teammate.

Judge Glenn Kim says Aholelei will have to spend one year in prison before he is eligible for parole.
