Man admits SA wheelie bin manslaughter


An Adelaide man has admitted killing another man and disposing of his body in a wheelie bin.

Timothy Seymour, 35, was due to stand trial for murdering 29-year-old Daniel Hind but on Thursday pleaded guilty in the South Australian Supreme Court to the lesser charge of manslaughter.

Mr Hind's body was discovered inside the wheelie bin near an intersection at Waterloo Corner in Adelaide's north on September 24, 2015.

The 29-year-old went missing more than three weeks earlier and was last seen on August 28 at the Whitehorse Inn Hotel in Bolivar.

Police previously said they believed Mr Hind was murdered on the night he disappeared.

His body was in the bin so long that it has been difficult to determine what injuries he suffered.

Police said Mr Hind's credit card was used to buy alcohol at the hotel shortly after he left and his phone was used to text an acquaintance early the next morning.

Further details of the case are expected to be revealed when Seymour returns court on Monday.
