& # 39; Adrenaline took over, & # 39; said the comprehensive tattooed martial arts expert Bullman. & # 39; I didn't want to kill him. I didn't know he was dead until the police told me he died in the hospital. & # 39;

& # 39; I have worked with physchiatric patients for 14 years and that is how you can control them (hold suffocation).

As a reminder of the evening of August 21, Bullman said: & I was with my girlfriend and we were happy that night. & # 39;
