Davidson, who had consumed five Xanax doses and smoked ice the day of the attack, had earlier told other inmates he'd "kill them all" and raised his fists above his head.

He was later found not guilty of murder because there was doubt over whether the intoxicated man had been capable of forming an intent to kill Pengue.

But Justice Davies rejected Davidson's claims that he was unable to remember the attack or was not guilty of manslaughter due to mental illness.

"This was not a fleeting event such as a shooting or a stabbing where an assailant with mental illness problems might not realise until too late that what he had done was wrong," Justice Davies said on Friday.

The judge handed Davidson an 11-year jail term for Pengue's death and set a minimum term of seven years.

The sentence will only begin in September 2022 as Davidson is currently serving time for another serious attack on a fellow prisoner who was choked with a T-shirt in February 2017.

At the time of Pengue's death in early 2018 his family demanded answers.

"His family await answers as to how his death occurred and why better security measures were not in place at Silverwater MRRC (Metropolitan Remand and Reception Centre)," they said in a statement.
