Katy (24) died in hospital four days after slipping in to a coma at their Meath home in December 2007. Kieron Ducie (43) and Ann Corcoran (31), who were in a relationship at the time of Ms. French's death, will face sentencing next year at Trim Circuit Court.

They have admitted to the courts that they conspired with a man to possess cocaine for the purpose of sale or supply to another person at an unknown location between 6 p.m. on December 1 and 10 a.m. the next day.

A post-mortem examination revealed that Katie suffered brain damage. Traces of cocaine were found in her system.

The court heard that a second charge would not be pursued - that Ducie and Corcoran intentionally or recklessly engaged in conduct related to the supply of cocaine to Ms. French and failed to get medical assistance in a timely fashion, which created a substantial risk of death or serious harm to another.
