Dad & daughter jailed for killing neighbour who popped football that landed in her garden

The pair had an argument with Kelly Machin after she burst the ball before throwing it back in a dispute in Leicester, in August last year.

 Natalie Bollen, 28, and her 48-year-old father, William Jelly, then went to her address and assaulted the 34-year-old, leaving her with injuries to her ribs and back.
 Bollen, and Jelly, both of Leicester, were convicted of manslaughter after a 10-day trial at Leicester Crown Court last month.

The father and daughter were back at the same court where they were jailed for what police described as a “devastating” crime.

After the attack on August 23 last year, Machin was treated in hospital and later discharged, Leicestershire Police said.

But she was then discovered dead on her sofa by a concerned friend, having succumbed to internal bleeding – nearly two weeks later.

Speaking after sentencing, Detective Chief Inspector Martin Smalley of East Midlands Special Operations Unit said: “A seemingly minor incident resulted in a person losing their life.

“The defendants’ actions on that day were excessive and they attacked Kelly without regard for the consequences.

“They now face a lengthy prison sentence and two families have been left devastated.”
