A MAN from Ellesmere Port charged in connection with the alleged hit-and-run death of a Scottish schoolboy has been released on bail.
His older brother has also been charged with culpable homicide after being arrested last Wednesday.
Michael Purcell, 19, has been bailed because he cannot be held in custody for more than 80 days, with the investigation ongoing into the death of Jack Anderson, 10, in October 2006.
As part of his bail conditions, Purcell must report daily to a specified police station between 10am and 1pm. He also had to surrender his passport.
He also faces three charges of attempted theft, one of theft and another of attempting to pervert the course of justice.
On Thursday his brother Isaac Purcell, 25, appeared at Edinburgh Sheriff Court charged with the youngster's death. He made no plea and charges of theft and attempting to pervert the course of justice were also laid against him. He has been remanded in custody.
Jack was knocked down on a crossing near his front door as he walked home from school in Edinburgh on October 5.
Patrick Nolan, 19, became the second man to be charged with Jack's culpable homicide earlier this year.
