Man accused of killing Radocaj released on bail
Timothy Richard granted bail
By DEAN PRITCHARD - Winnipeg Sun

A 20-year-old man arrested in the murder of former wrestler Ivan Radocaj has been granted bail.

Timothy Richard was released on bail this morning with the consent of the Crown.

Richard was one of six people arrested for killing Radocaj, including his ex-wife Melody Lynn Sanford, 43. All six accused have been charged with first-degree murder.

Sanford and co-accused Donald Richard, 31, Daniel Richard, 23, and Christopher Houle, 18, remain in custody.

Rita Louise Cushnie, 53, was previously released on bail. Cushnie has been identified as a friend of Sanford and Donald Richard's mother.

Radocaj--a former pro wrestler once known as the Croatian Giant--was found dead in his Komarno-area home on Sept. 14, the victim of blunt force trauma.

Radocaj and Sanford married last summer and -- according to court documents -- spent just three months together before Sanford filed for divorce.

Sanford has denied any involvement in her ex-husband's murder.
