A man has been jailed for life for murdering the father of missing Blackpool teenager Paige Chivers.
Frank Chivers, 49, was found with a head injury at his house in Walter Robinson Court, Layton, on 11 August.
Mr Chivers was the father of Paige Chivers who went missing in 2007 aged 15 and has never been found.
Sean Conlon, 44, of no fixed address, had denied murder and manslaughter but was convicted on Monday following a trial at Preston Crown Court.
He must serve a minimum of 15 years.
A post-mortem examination found Mr Chivers had a mark on his cheek and neck consistent with having been kicked.
He never regained consciousness after the attack and died from a bleed on the brain.
