Airbnb host admits manslaughter after killing guest over unpaid bill
An Airbnb host has admitted killing a guest at his home near Melbourne, Australia, who couldn't afford to pay. Jason Colton, 42, denies murder but has pleaded guilty to the manslaughter of Ramis Jonuzi in October 2017. A court heard two housemates held the 36-year-old man down, while Colton beat and strangled him for not paying the A$210 he owed them. Prosecutor Mark Gibson told the court that Colton was the first to attack Mr Jonuzi: "[He] picked him up and threw him against the wall and started choking him. Australian broadcaster ABC reports that Levy and Smart held their guest down, while Colton beat him until he lost consciousness.
