Court rejects damage claims of US singer Randy Blythe over manslaughter trial

A Prague court rejected Wednesday the claim of US heavy metal singer Randy Blythe to more than 15 million crowns in damages. The claim was connected to the one month in custody which Blythe spent following charges against him connected with the death of a fan at a Prague concert in 2010. The fan was allegedly thrown off the stage by Blythe and later died from head injuries. The charges against Blythe were rejected in March 2013. Blythe’s lawyer said he would discuss the next moves with his client. An appeal can be lodged with Prague’s Municipal Court. Blythe is known as the lead singer of the group Lamb of God.
