One punch killer accused of bashing fellow inmate in Brisbane

The man who killed Brisbane teenager Cole Miller last year has been charged with assaulting another person while in prison.

Armstrong Renata was due to be sentenced in the Brisbane Supreme Court on Monday but had his case adjourned due to new charges.

He is now also facing two charges of serious assault for allegedly assaulting someone while in custody in April 2017 this year.

The 22-year-old has already pleaded guilty to unlawful striking causing death for the attack on Mr Miller in January last year.

The offence, created in 2014, was designed to combat alcohol-fuelled violence and carries a maximum sentence of life imprisonment.

Due to the nature of his offence, he will have to serve 80 per cent, or at least 15 years, of any jail sentence he receives.
