Matthew Curtis, 18, denies the manslaughter of Philip Long, who died days after incident in Wrexham town centre. A teenager claimed he punched a dad who died following the blow, to save his friend from being assaulted further by him. Matthew Curtis, 18, insisted his actions were “reasonable” and “proportionate” in a statement, when he struck Philip James Long on College Street, Wrexham , in the early hours of Sunday, August 4, last year, Mold Crown Court heard. Dad-of-four, Mr Long, fell back and hit his head suffering catastrophic injuries, which he later died of on Tuesday, August 6. It was the day after the second anniversary of his wedding to wife Hayley, for which Mr Long had prepared a surprise night out on Saturday, August 3. They were walking home to get a taxi in the early hours of Sunday following the night out, when Curtis hit year-old Mr Long, from Marchweil, with a single blow. He told the court he initially lied to the police that somebody else had struck Mr Long, because he had panicked and was worried about being “taken away” during questioning by Nicholas Williams, acting for the defence. The court heard Curtis was with a group of friends in Wrexham. Later two of them, males, starting fighting with each other and then another female started slapping one of them. Curtis said Mr Long had come over to help, but at one point “lost it” and pushed one of his friends to the ground and he feared he was going to attack him again so he punched him once with his left hand to his face.
