British kickboxer Lee ‘The Pitbull’ Aldhouse was sentenced to 25 years for the stabbing death of a U.S. Marine.
A British kickboxer has started a 25-year jail sentence for stabbing a decorated U.S. Marine to death during a bar brawl in Thailand.
Dashawn Longfellow, a Marine, had been in Thailand studying martial arts when he encountered Lee Aldhouse at a bar.
Aldhouse — whose stage name is “The Pitbull” — reportedly tried to block Purple Heart-recipient Longfellow from using the bathroom.

The pair started to fight, but were broken up by other drinkers.
The Brit, incensed at being beaten in the brawl, then went home to grab a knife, before stalking his rival back to his hotel.
Longfellow’s brother had harsh words for Aldhouse: ‘Lee deserves to rot and in Hell,’ he posted to a Facebook tribute group for the slain Marine.
In front of his victim’s terrified girlfriend, he then stabbed him twice in the chest.

Before his sentencing last month, The Sun reports Aldhouse as saying, “I didn’t mean to kill him like that. That night, I got very drunk.”
Longfellow, from Colorado, had been in Thailand studying martial arts after serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.
His brother Marquis took to Facebook on Thursday to write, “Lee deserves to rot and in Hell. Don’t get me wrong, 25 years is better than nothing but it damn sure is not long enough.”
