A Camborne teenager is found guilty of attempted murder.
Tyler Fielding punched, kicked, and repeatedly stamped on Victor King after a night out last summer, as he lay bleeding on the floor.
The 16 year old had admitted wounding but said he never meant to kill anyone.
Now he has been convicted at Truro Crown Court.
Jurors heard how the attack has left Victor King seriously disabled and totally dependent on his wife.
