Man Admits Manslaughter At Old Bailey

An unemployed man today admitted killing a man in the street and stealing money from him.

27-year-old Terry Smylie, of no fixed address, pleaded guilty to theft and the manslaughter of 45-year-old Michael Walser, at the Old Bailey.

He has been remanded in custody for sentencing on 17th May.

Mr Walser was found dead at his home in Gloucester Terrace, Paddington, west London, in June, last year, five days after being attacked. He had earlier collected £150 from a Post Office and was pushed to the ground and the money taken from him in Lisson Grove.

A post mortem examination found Mr Walser died from head injuries caused by the fall.

Acting Detective Chief Inspector Andy Manning said: "This was an unprovoked, senseless attack on an innocent man."
