LAS VEGAS — A man who threw a fatal unprovoked punch outside a bar in downtown Las Vegas has pleaded guilty to one count of voluntary manslaughter.

KLAS-TV reports James Beach, who appeared in court Wednesday, faces up to 10 years in prison. The family of the victim, Luis Campos, says Beach should do more time.

Beach will be sentenced April 10.

Campos was visiting Las Vegas from California for his brother’s bachelor party in April 2017. He died at the hospital four days after the attack.
