NH Man Sentenced In Fatal Bar Assault

PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) — A New Hampshire man has been sentenced to 10 1/2 to 22 years in prison in a dance floor assault at a Portsmouth bar that led to the death of another man.

Zachary O’Neil of Dover was sentenced Thursday for manslaughter in the death of 24-year-old Joshua Krantz of Dover in April.

Police say O’Neil was angry that Krantz had spilled a drink on him earlier in the evening. O’Neill is accused of repeatedly striking Krantz in the head.

Police say Krantz was found dead in his apartment the following day on April 6.
