The trial of three men charged with murdering a 20-year-old man in Co. Kildare last year has been adjourned because a juror is "unwell”.
James Seery (21) of Canal Side, Athy in Kildare, Quentin Monaghan (21) of Tullamoy, Stradbally, Co. Laois and Darren Wynne (21) of Ballyroe, Athy, Co. Kildare were arraigned before the Central Criminal Court yesterday.
All three pleaded not guilty to murdering Jamie Lindsay at Coney Green, Coneyboro, Athy, Co. Kildare on April 6, 2013.
Mr Wynne also pleaded not guilty to possession of a sawn-off shotgun and ammunition with intent to endanger life on that occasion.
However, Mr Wynne pleaded guilty to possession of a sawn-off shotgun and cartridges in suspicious circumstances on the same date.
Today Mr Justice Garrett Sheehan noted that one of the members of the jury was “unwell”.
Mr Justice Sheehan asked the jury to return on Monday and he told them the trial was still expected to last three to four weeks.
