The 25 year old man, charged in connection with the 2009 death of Christopher Skinner has pleaded guilty to manslaughter.
It’s alleged that Agustin Alexander Caruso was behind the wheel of the SUV which struck 27 year old Skinner, following an altercation between him and several people in the vehicle.
Police say the the deceased may have inadvertently come into contact with the vehicle while trying to hail a cab, prompting the attack in the early hours of October 18th, 2009 in the area of Adelaide and Victoria streets.
Caruso had originally been been charged with second degree murder in 2013, but pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of manslaughter at a Toronto court on Monday.
Police believe that there were 6 people in the SUV at the time and three others have been arrested and charged in relation to the death.
Jamaal Phillips Bond and Nicholas Swaby both face charges of assault causing bodily harm with Bond facing an additional charge of obstructing police, while Anthony Samuel has been charged with conspiracy to commit aggravated assault and obstructing police.
Caruso has admitted to beating and running over Skinner and has been sentenced to 8.5 years in prison for manslaughter.
