Petition Increase sentences for one punch assaults that kill to equal those for murder

I want them to change the law with one punch crimes .making it murder when you hit someone from behind for no reason. My nephew Dean skillin was punched from behind on a night out with friends. He was hit that hard he was Dead before he hit the floor .The man who hit him was a skilled fighter .

More details

I want the Government to make minimum and maximum sentences for assaults where a single punch leads to death equal to those for murder. One punch can kill, and where it does offenders should face penalties equivalent to those for murder.
