TWO men who were on a football trip in Adelaide when they allegedly assaulted a man have been charged with manslaughter.Clint Hislop, 28, of McLaren Vale south of Adelaide, was assaulted outside a backpackers' hostel in the beachside suburb of Glenelg early on October 8 and died in hospital two days later.
Bradley John Nelson and Rhys Alan Millard, both 23, from Geelong, appeared in the Adelaide magistrates court today facing new charges of manslaughter.
They had been charged with aggravated assault causing harm.
Their bail was continued and the matter adjourned to February 8.
Outside court, Mr Hislop's father, Peter Hislop, said the court appearance was tough on his family and his son's friends.
"It's like knocking a scab off a wound again," he said, acknowledging it was just the start of a long legal process.
"Each time will be just as painful as this for us all."
