Toyosi accused has bail term extended

A MAN charged with the manslaughter of a Nigerian schoolboy has been remanded on continuing bail for four weeks as gardai are still waiting for DPP's directions on the charge.

Paul Barry (38) is accused of the unlawful killing of 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 Shitta-bey, contrary to common law.

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

The teenager, who was a footballer with Shelbourne's under 15s, died late on Good Friday evening as a result of stab wounds following an altercation. The court heard that gardai are still awaiting DPP's directions in relation to the charge.

Judge Patrick McMahon adjourned the matter to a date in July. The defendant's brother, Michael Barry (23), is also due in court that day.

He is alleged to have produced a hockey stick during the course of an incident in which Toyosi received a number of stab wounds.

As part of his bail conditions, Paul Barry must sign on at Pearse Street Garda Station, and he has surrendered his passport. He has also been ordered to stay out of the Dublin 15 area while on bail and not to contact any of the witnesses in the case, either directly or indirectly.
