Kevin Tripp, an ME sufferer who had a five-year-old daughter, was punched to the floor as he stood by his trolley at a Sainsbury\’s store in south London last June. He collapsed to the ground headfirst and died of brain injuries.
Jurors were told that the 57-year-old had been mistaken for another shopper, who had angrily accused Antonette Richardson of pushing into a queue.
She was so incensed that she rang her boyfriend and summoned him to the store in Merton. Tony Virasami joined her within minutes, took Mr Tripp to be the culprit and said "Don\’t mess with my wife" before striking him "a most almighty" blow, the court heard.
Some take queuing very seriously indeed.
