Trial begins for man charged with throwing deadly punch near AG bar

Posted: Updated:

A manslaughter trial in San Luis Obispo County is just beginning, more than three years after a gang member allegedly sucker-punched a man outside an Arroyo Grande bar.
     
Jury selection in the Ignacio Palomar trial started Monday.

The 39-year-old has pleaded not guilty to voluntary manslaughter.
     
Arroyo Grande police say he hit a man from behind while he was walking away from a bar where the two had been back in October 2014. 
     
The victim died weeks later.

Jail logs show Palomar has been in custody since November 2014.

Opening statements in the trial will begin once a jury is selected.
