An internet café owner who beat a recovering drug addict to death in a row over the payment of a 70 cent phone call has been jailed for six years.

Zhao Zhen Dong, with an address at South William Street in Dublin city centre, was originally convicted of murder but that was overturned on appeal.

He later pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of manslaughter.

CCTV footage from outside the shop showed him kicking Noel Fegan in the head in an attack that lasted no more than 10 seconds.

Speaking outside court this afternoon, Mr Fegan's niece Claudia Doyle said she did not feel justice had been served.

"We're just really disappointed and very upset," she told reporters.
