Jury out in case of nurse accusing stabbing five people

THE jury in the trial of a psychiatric nurse accused of stabbing five people and assaulting a sixth have begun their deliberations.

Brian Quinn (46) has pleaded not guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court to intentionally or recklessly causing serious harm to Stephen Keogh, Lee Harte and James Toner Senior on October 9, 2011.

He further pleaded not guilty to assault causing harm to Kurtis Lennon, James Toner Junior and Robert Ryan. He also pleaded not guilty to the production of a knife.

Mr Quinn, who now lives in Balbriggan, is accused of carrying out the multiple stabbings at his former address in Deer Park Avenue, Kiltipper, Tallaght, after a row at his next-door neighbour's birthday party.

The jury of nine men and three women will continue their deliberations tomorrow. They had deliberated for one hour before Judge Carmel Stewart sent them home for the night.
