Hammer victim to relive attack that killed pal

AN Irish backpacker will be forced to relive a vicious attack which led to his childhood friend's death in an Australian hostel.

Victorian state police detectives will call David Byas to give evidence in the case of Luke James Wentholt (31) who has been charged with the murder of David Greene.

Police will allege Mr Wentholt viciously attacked Mr Greene with a hammer during a fight in a hostel in the St Kilda East area of Melbourne on August 26. Mr Greene died two weeks later from the injuries he sustained in the 1am attack. Mr Byas has since returned to Dublin and will now give evidence at a murder hearing next year.
