Rearrested boat captain to be released

A North Miami boat captain facing a manslaughter charge is expected to be released from jail after he was rearrested for failing to appear in court because of a paperwork mix-up, his lawyer said.

Eulices Alvarez Barrios, 38, is accused of hurling a party-goer from his boat into Biscayne Bay on July 4. The man he allegedly tossed, Domingo Vilalta, 22, was killed by a boat propeller and his body was not found until two days later.
