The jury are continuing deliberations in the trial of a Cavan man charged with murdering his wife.

Oliver Kierans (57) of Drumbannon Bailieborough in Cavan has pleaded not guilty to murdering Patricia Kierans (54) on September 5th, 2013 at the same address.

He pleaded not guilty to unlawful possession of a 12 gauge double barrel shotgun but was found guilty of that charge earlier this week by the jury.

He also pleaded not guilty to the possession of the same shotgun with intent to endanger life.

The jury have been deliberating for more than twelve hour and will resume their deliberations this afternoon.
