SYD­NEY — A Syd­ney man charged with man­slaugh­ter is to re­turn to pro­vin­cial court Oct. 6 for a bail hear­ing.

Larry Daniel Stevens, 34, is charged in con­nec­tion with the death of 37-year-old James Bernard Bonar.

Stevens is al­leged to have punched Bonar ren­der­ing him un­con­scious as he fell onto Argyle Street near Went­worth Park, in the early morn­ing hours of Aug. 31.

Stevens, Bonar and Bonar’s girl­friend were walk­ing along Argyle Street when the two men got into an al­ter­ca­tion.

Stevens fled the scene and as Bonar lay un­con­scious in the street, he was hit by a taxi. No charges were filed against the cab driver.

Stevens made a brief pro­vin­cial court ap­pear­ance Fri­day and will con­tinue to be on re­mand pend­ing the out­come of his bail hear­ing.
