Counsel for recaptured killer Trent Jennings told a Sydney court yesterday that his client may apply for bail on charges related to crimes allegedly committed while he was awol.

Jennings did not appear in Sydney Central Local Court but the family of the man he killed were present. They declined to speak to the media.

Police say Jennings tied up a man and stole his car while on day leave from Morisset psychiatric hospital on 29 December, where he was committed after tying up and killing a man he met for casual sex in a Sydney park in 2003.

Jennings absconded while on day leave again the following day (30 December) and evaded authorities for six days before being arrested asleep in the stolen vehicle in Byron Bay.

Jennings’s solicitor applied for bail when he faced Lismore Local Court last week but it was denied.
