Sydney, Apr 25: An Australian was sentenced to 25 years imprisonment for killing a man for throwing cheese-flavoured snacks at her car.

Terming it as a 'senseless act of anger', Judge Roderick Howie told the New South Wales Supreme Court that the accused, Sarah May Ward, tried to cause physical harm to Eli Westlake, who threw food at her vehicle.

"She clearly wanted to teach the young men a lesson," he said.

The jury was told that before getting into her car Sydney's northern suburbs on Jun 7, 2008, 39-year-old Ward had consumed two bottles of wine and used cannabis, amphetamine drugs and anti-depressants.
