Murder charge husband 'sorry'

A MAN charged with murdering his wife told arresting gardai he was "sorry", a court heard last night.

There were violent scenes as Oliver Kierans arrived at Cavan District Court. The unmarked garda car carrying him was set upon by an angry group of onlookers and an officer was knocked to the ground during the scuffles. Kierans, who has been accused of murdering his estranged wife Patricia at their former home in Bailieborough last Thursday, was remanded in custody to appear in court again on Friday.
