Coward punch killer pleads guilty in Lindsay Ede case

A MAN has pleaded guilty to killing Ipswich grandfather Lindsay Ede in a random coward punch attack.

Ariik Mayot, the first person in Queensland to be charged under the state's tough new coward punch laws, attacked Mr Ede, 56, from behind as he was walking down a street in Goodna last year.
