Trial continues for Abington man in 'single-punch' case


An Abington man is on trial for a fatal fight that happened last year. The jury in Brockton Superior Court has to decide whether Michael McGunigle acted in self-defense during a deadly fight last year in an Abington parking lot.

McGunigle admits to throwing the only punch in that fight after he and Brian Cherry began arguing over McGunigle's barking dog.

McGunigle sat down with Fox Undercover earlier this month, insisting he acted in self-defense. McGunigle did not testify at the trial, but his interview with us was played for the jury.

In closing arguments the prosecutor said McGunigle's statements to us were not consistent with what he told the police. Both sides are painting very different pictures of what led to the punch.

Fox Undercover will have more updates on the trial as they develop.
