QUINCY, Mass. (AP) - The trial of a Massachusetts man charged with fatally punching and stomping another man in what prosecutors say was an unprovoked attack at a now closed Quincy bar is scheduled to start.

The Patriot Ledger (https://bit.ly/2panByt ) reports that jury selection in the murder trial of 44-year-old Paul Fahey is expected to get underway Tuesday.

Authorities say in March 2015 Fahey punched 42-year-old Keith Boudreau in the Home Ice Sports Bar, and when he was on the ground, stomped on the victim’s head while wearing a heavy work boot.

Boudreau, a father of two, later died at the hospital.

Witnesses said Boudreau stared at Fahey, but they did not exchange words.

Fahey’s attorney has indicated in court motions that he plans to argue self-defense, because Boudreau was the aggressor in the confrontation.
