A KILLARNEY woman has been extradited from the UK and brought before court in Kerry to face an accessory charge arising out of the manslaughter of father-of-three, James Brazier, in 2007.
Stephanie Conway, of 10 Deerpark Crescent, Deerpark, Killarney, appeared at Tralee District Court on Thursday, having been remanded from a special sitting in Tralee the previous Friday night where she appeared on foot of the extradition warrant.
Ms Conway is charged with offences contrary to section 7 and 4 of the Criminal Justice Act - that she did bring a change of clothes to Gerard and Shane O'Riordan ( the men jailed for Brazier's manslaughter) to the home of Daniel O'Riordan in Newmarket on April 15, 2007, knowing they were guilty of the manslaughter of James Brazier.
On Thursday, the book of evidence in the case was served on Ms Conway and she was sent forward for trial to the next sitting of Tralee Circuit Criminal Court.
Solicitor Pádraig O'Connell did not object to the State's application to a remand in custody and legal aid, which was granted at Friday night's initial hearing, was extended to cover one junior counsel.
Thirty- year- old James Brazier died of multiple stab wounds after being attacked by brothers Shane and Gerard O'Riordan at a house in Pinewood Estate in Killarney on April 15, 2007.
In 2009, the brothers were each handed a 14-year prison sentence after being convicted of the manslaughter of Mr Brazier.
Gerard O'Riordan had 18 months of his sentence suspended while Shane O'Riordan had five years suspended. The brothers' trial heard details of an "extremely savage attack" on James Brazier who was beaten to death after being found in the bedroom of Shane O'Riordan's 15year-old ex-girlfriend.
