Adrian Donohoe murder accused to be served with book of evidence in four weeks
A man accused of the murder of Detective Garda Adrian Donohoe five and a half years ago will be served with a book of evidence in four weeks.
Aaron Brady (27) from New Road, Crossmaglen, Co Armagh was charged that he murdered a Garda, namely Adrian Donohoe, in the course of his duty at Lordship Credit Union, Bellurgan, Co Louth on January 25th 2013. The charge was contrary to Section 3 of the 1990 Criminal Justice Act.
In his sixth hearing since being charged, he appeared again via video-link yesterday before Judge Victor Blake at Cloverhill District Court.
According to a report in The Irish Examiner, Judge Blake noted from the prosecution that there was an application to amend the existing charge to insert the words “a member of An Garda Siochana” and that the offence was also contrary to other legislation, Section Four of the Criminal Justice Act 1964.
There was no objection to the amendment and the judge noted from a solicitor for the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) that the book of evidence would be ready in four weeks.
Mr Brady was further remanded in custody to appear again at the same court on July 27th to be served with a book of evidence and returned for trial to the Central Criminal Court.
