Alleged killer of dad-of-six faces trial

A MAN accused of killing a Co Offaly father-of-six just after Christmas has been sent forward for trial.

Keelan Hand (23) remains in custody on the charge.

The accused, of Bridge Street, Kilcormack, Co Offaly, appeared before Cloverhill District Court charged with the murder of Christy Daly at Bog Lane, Kilbride, Clara on December 29, 2013.

A State solicitor said that the book of evidence was ready and had been served on Mr Hand, who goes forward to the next sittings of the Central Criminal Court.

Judge Alan Mitchell gave Mr Hand the formal alibi caution and he ordered the disclosure of any video tapes of interview to the accused's legal team.

Two other men have previously been charged in connection with Mr Daly's death.
