Florence Loyie of the Edmonton Journal reports:Stefan Conley (photo) died after he got into a heated discussion with four teenagers on an Edmonton [Alberta, Canada] city transit bus about the rock band METALLICA, telling them they had no taste in heavy metal music, court was told today. A witness testified the 35-year-old man got angry when one of the youths he ridiculed undid his belt and top button in a silent invitation to perform a sex act on him. Conley, who stood five-feet eleven-inches tall and weighed 198 pounds, got up and grabbed the youth, said the witness, who was also a passenger on the bus. The teen yelled at the older man, telling him to get away from him. Three other teens jumped up and began punching Conley and yelled: "Leave him (their friend) alone," the witness said. The witness, who was 15 at the time, wasn't among the four youths charged with Conley's death. Conley died after the scuffle, which occurred on a near South Edmonton Common about 9 p.m. March 2. The four teens, each charged with manslaughter, are in youth court for a preliminary hearing to determine if there is enough evidence to send the case to trial. There is no publication ban on the hearing but the four cannot be identified under the Youth Criminal Justice Act. One was 16 and three were 17 at the time of the killing. The passenger testified the attack on Conley lasted about 10 seconds and the youth stopped punching him once he let go of their friend. Read the entire article at the Edmonton Journal.
