Sentence due over Vic teen's bashing death

A man who fatally kicked and stomped on a teenager in a Melbourne laneway is set to be sentenced for manslaughter.

Shengliang Wan, 24, bashed Jeremy Hu, 19, during a late-night fight in the city's Chinatown in April 2016.

Mr Hu, a Yarra Valley Grammar student, suffered a fractured skull and bleeding on the brain, dying in hospital after the brawl.

The victim's mother Liping Yuan said Mr Hu was bright and handsome and enjoyed basketball and piano.

Wan, who was found not guilty of murder at trial and had earlier admitted manslaughter, is due to be sentenced in the Supreme Court on Monday.

The court was previously told the fight was triggered when a friend of Wan's became jealous over a girl.

An initial altercation broke out between Mr Hu and Wan's friend before the latter began attacking the teenager, kicking his head and stomping on him.

Footage showed Wan, who had been studying commerce at RMIT, steady himself on a wall before delivering the final two blows.
