Toyosi accused brothers bailed again

TWO brothers charged in connection with the killing of a Nigerian teenager have been remanded on continuing bail for eight weeks as the Director of Public Prosecution's directions are still outstanding in the matter.

Paul Barry (38) is accused of killing 15-year-old Toyosi Shittabey following an altercation in Tyrrelstown.

The accused, of Pearse Street in Dublin, appeared before Blanchardstown District Court charged with the manslaughter of Toyosi.

The alleged incident took place on April 4 at The Boulevard, Mount Eustace estate, just a short distance from the victim's home.


His brother, Michael, (23), of Pigeon House Road, Dublin 4, is alleged to have produced a hockey stick during the course of a dispute.

It is alleged that during this incident Toyosi received a number of stab wounds.

The teenager, who was a footballer with Shelbourne's under-15 team, died late on Good Friday evening as a result of stab wounds following an altercation.

The court heard that gardai are still awaiting the DPP's directions in relation to the charges.

The DPP is also still considering bringing fresh charges against the brothers.

On behalf of Michael Barry, defence solicitor Matthew Kenny asked the court to reduce his signing-on condition to once a week. Gardai said there was no objection to this.

Judge Patrick McMahon adjourned both matters to a date in September.

Both men have been ordered to stay out of the Dublin 15 area while on bail and are not to contact any of the witnesses in the case, either directly or indirectly.
