A FORMER journalism student from Notre Dame was sentenced this week to at least 16 years’ gaol after pleading guilty to the stabbing murder of James Tony Hyman.
Peter Fox-Slater appeared in the supreme court Thursday, where it emerged he’d mistaken the victim for someone he’d had a fight with earlier.
Mr Hyman had been sleeping rough at the port because he and his partner couldn’t bear to be separated and there’s a dire shortage of emergency accommodation services for couples.
St Pat’s family crisis accommodation is facing its own crisis, with state funding running out in May. It’s surviving on a donation from a anonymous benefactor.
