Man accused of killing ex-girlfriend gets bail

NASSAU- A man accused of killing his ex-girlfriend in 2020 has been granted bail.

Barry Swain Jr was charged with manslaughter in Angelita Pritchard’s death.

Pritchard, a mother-of-seven, was found strangled to death in her home in Crown Haven, Abaco on December 26, 2020.

Swain does not have a trial date, as his matter isn’t before the Supreme Court.

Prosecutors have missed four scheduled dates to serve Swain with a voluntary bill of indictment, which would commit him to stand trial.

Justice Gregory Hilton set Swain’s bail at $15,000 on Thursday.

The prosecution did not object to his release.

Christina Galanos represents Swain.
