TORONTO -- The cop accused of murdering Sammy Yatim on a streetcar last summer has quietly returned to work.

The decision to have Const. James Forcillo return to duty -- after a seven-month suspension with pay -- was made by Chief Bill Blair.

Although the 14 Division officer's second-degree murder charge in the 18-year-old's death is still before the courts, Toronto Police say Blair decided to bring Forcillo back to work in an administrative role with Crime Stoppers several months ago.
