THREE brothers have finally been jailed for manslaughter after two of them went on the run before their initial sentencing. Valodia, Jurius and Viktoras Tarasov - 35, 33 and 39 respectively - were convicted on July 24 for the manslaughter of Pawel Pacholak, 37, who jumped to his death from a bathroom window in Streatham after fleeing a violent attack by the brothers on January 13, 2013. They were sentenced at the Old Bailey today for seven years each for manslaughter. Valodia, of Abingdon Road, Norbury, was also sentenced to nine months for conspiracy to pervert the course of justice and three months for breech of bail to run concurrently, Jurius received an additional nine months to run concurrently with his manslaughter sentence. Viktoras, of Aurelia Road, Croydon, was given an additional six months to run concurrently for conspiracy to pervert the course of justice. Jurius and Valodia failed to show for their sentencing the day after at the Old Bailey. Valodia was arrested the same day (July 25) following a police appeal for information but it took a week longer to find Jurius who was arrested on August 2 in Croydon town centre after officers received a tip-off from a member of the public. The dispute which led to Mr Pacholak's death started when the three intoxicated brothers falsely accused him of stealing a mobile phone. They had beaten him before he sought refuge in an upstairs bathroom before he jumped out of a window, landing face-down, breaking his neck and collapsing a short time later.
