The Toronto Sun is reporting that the officer charged in the death of Sammy Yatim is back at work.

According to the paper, Toronto Const. James Forcillo is in an administrative role with Crime Stoppers, and has been for several months.

The paper says the decision to bring Forcillo back after a seven-month suspension with pay was made by Chief Bill Blair.

Forcillo is expected back in court Thursday for the continuation of a preliminary hearing that will determine whether or not he'll stand trial in the death of 18-year-old Yatim.

Yatim was allegedly waving a knife and threatening passengers on a TTC streetcar. After shouting for him to drop the knife, police fired several bullets into the car.

Forcillo is facing a second-degree murder charge.
