A man has admitted in an Australian court to choking to death an Airbnb guest over an unpaid $149 bill.
Jason Colton pleaded not guilty to a murder charge in the Victoria state Supreme Court on Monday but admitted to manslaughter in Ramis Jonuzi’s death in 2017. Colton would face a life sentence. He could face 20 years if the jury charges him with manslaughter. Jonuzi had been renting a room in a Melbourne home where Colton was also a tenant. Jonuzi first rented a room for three nights on Airbnb but agreed to stay another week for $149. The trial continues on Tuesday.
