Anthony Cromb released on bail over manslaughter charge

The Yarrawonga district man accused of killing Holbrook's Troy Wetmore has been released on $50,000 bail.

Anthony Cromb, 52, of St James, breathed a sigh of relief after magistrate Tony Murray approved his bail application in Albury Local Court this afternoon.

Cromb, had been in custody since being charged with manslaughter following Mr Wetmore's death last Tuesday night, April 8.

Police allege Cromb and Mr Wetmore, 35, got into a brief fight on a farm property on Culcairn-Holbrook Road, during which the younger man was knocked down.

It is then alleged Cromb drove off in his car and unknowingly ran over Mr Wetmore in the process.

Police did not oppose Cromb's bail application.

Mr Murray granted the application on the conditions a $50,000 surety was lodged, that Cromb report to Mulwala police station weekly, and that he reside at his Oliver Road, St James home with his wife.

He was ordered to reappear before the court on July 14.
