A man whose severed remains were discovered in County Meath last month was due to stand trial at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court on drug dealing charges.

Christopher Gaffney (37) of Huntstown Woods, Mulhuddart, had been sent forward from the District Court on charges of having heroin for sale or supply and being in possession of heroin at Bertram Court, Dublin 8, on January 14, 2011.

Mr Gaffney had been reported missing on October 1, last.

The last of the remains of his body were discovered in an area near Clonee, in County Meath last month after various garda units spent three days intensively searching the area.

A human arm and part of a shoulder were discovered in a field in the area on November 1, last.

Judge Patricia Ryan entered a nolle prosequi in the case today when she was informed the accused man is now deceased.
