MELBOURNE, Australia — A man has admitted in an Australian court to choking to death an Airbnb guest over an unpaid 210 Australian dollar (US$149) bill.
Jonuzi had been renting a room in a Melbourne home where Colton was also a tenant
Jason Colton pleaded not guilty to a murder charge in the Victoria state Supreme Court on Monday but admitted to manslaughter in Ramis Jonuzi's death in 2017. Colton would face a potential life sentence if a jury convicts him of murder. He would face a potential 20 years if the jury accepts his death was manslaughter.
Jonuzi had been renting a room in a Melbourne home where Colton was also a tenant.
Jonuzi first rented a room for three nights on Airbnb, but agreed to stay another week for AU$210.
