A transgender woman who allegedly killed her older boyfriend in an alleged ‘domestic violence incident’ has been granted bail, provided she can find her passport.

Jade Walker, 31, faced Sutherland Local Court via video link on Monday morning, charged with the manslaughter of Gilbert Caetano, 58, in the early hours of Sunday, May 20.

Ms Walker, the sister of rugby league star Dylan Walker, will walk free on bail when her family can find the New Zealand passport which the court heard she didn’t know she still had.

Magistrate Glenn Walsh ordered that before she could be released on bail, Ms Walker had to surrender the document.

‘She did not think she had one at all, so she may have trouble finding it,’ her lawyer Brenda Duchen told the court.

Ms Walker was supported in court by her mother Judy, who offered a $4,000 surety and will house her daughter while she is out on bail.

As part of her bail conditions Ms Walker will have a 10pm nightly curfew, report to police daily and not be able to drink alcohol or take unprescribed drugs.

It is understood that Ms Walker has long taken hormone tablets as part of her transition from a male.

An AVO application was also heard on Monday, barring Ms Walker from going within 500 metres of the Brighton-Le-Sands home, in south Sydney, where Mr Caetano died.
