An Australian man accused of killing a grandfather when he allegedly threw a wine bottle off the balcony of a high-rise building in Singapore stands for 15 years in prison and a public cane.
Andrew Gosling, 47, is said to have thrown a bottle of Italian red on the seventh floor of an apartment complex in Singapore on August 18 around 8:40 PM.
The bottle, reportedly thrown by the Melbourne-born I.T contractor, hit Nasiari Sunee, 73, on the head while he was celebrating at the housewarming party of a family member two floors below.
Gosling, who works as a contractor for technology company Orica, was accused of what is locally known as the & # 39; murderous waste crime & # 39 ;.
But that charge was upgraded over the weekend to the more serious & # 39; cause serious and serious injury with an instrument & # 39 ;, which means that if he is found guilty, he is now not only in prison but also in a Muslim style.

The bottle hit Nasiari Sunee (right), 73, which was two floors lower at a housewarming party. He was rushed to the hospital but died of his injuries.
Gosling stood in front of a Singaporean court on Saturday where prosecutors claimed that he allegedly threw the bottle that he & # 39; knew it was likely & # 39; that he would cause serious damage, The Straits Times reports.
Mr. Sunee's cousin, Mohammed Nafis, said that joy over the man's arrest was not the answer, and & # 39; the Singapore law can best be handled with Mr. Gosling as he (right) thinks .
"We believe that our loss from this incident was very unfortunate," said Mr. Nafis.
& # 39; But if we were instructed to face such a fate, we should embrace it with much love and a high degree of maturity as thinking adults.
& # 39; Every living being will ever go on in life, only that no one knows how & # 39; they & # 39; will be settled.
Singapore police claim that Gosling hurled a bottle of Polissena Il Borro sangiovese over the balcony. It is not yet clear why he would have done this.
