A man who was jailed for killing another man after he set him alight has been sent back to prison for breaching his parole conditions.

Shay Barry Webster, 26, was jailed for five years and three months after pleading guilty to the manslaughter of Terry Smith.

Webster poured petrol on Mr Smith and set him alight on Anzac Day in 2013, Court News reports. 

Webster claimed he believed Mr Smith was a paedophile but he was mistaken. 

Webster was released from jail in February this year. In June he was intoxicated when he was arrested outside his curfew hours at an address that was not approved by the Parole Board. 

On Monday he admitted breaching his two parole conditions and has been recalled to prison, where he awaits a final hearing. 

His prison sentence expires January 24, 2019.
