Irish Daily Mirror - - NEWS - BY EMILY PENNINK

A JURY failed to reach a ver­dict in the trial of a for­mer garda ac­cused of killing a drunk man by push­ing him out of a lift. Oliver Hur­ley, 64, al­legedly shoved Mano­lito Chando, 56, dur­ing a row at a Sal­va­tion Army hos­tel in Lon­don. The in­ci­dent at 8pm on March 24 last year was caught on CCTV. Fol­low­ing Mr Chando’s death in hospi­tal, Hur­ley, from Co Wick­low, was charged with man­slaugh­ter. He de­nied push­ing Mr Chando hard and claimed he acted in self-de­fence. The pros­e­cu­tion is con­sid­er­ing whether to ap­ply for a re­trial. Hur­ley was granted con­di­tional bail un­til the case re­turns to the Old Bai­ley on Oc­to­ber 23.
