Airbnb host jailed for killing guest over unpaid bill
A jury convicted Jason Colton, 42, of 2017 killing of Ramis Jonuzi. A court heard two housemates had held the 36-year-old down, while Colton beat and strangled him for not paying the A$210 he owed. The bricklayer first rented the room for three nights from the three men - Colton, landlord Craig Levy and housemate Ryan Smart - before asking to extend his stay by a week for A$210. Justice Hollingworth said Colton instigated the "Brutal and one-sided" attack, and later downplayed his actions amid other lies he told police. Prosecutors told the court that Colton beat his guest until he lost consciousness.
