The prosecution has closed its case in the trial of Gerry Hutch (left) for the Regency hotel murder, for which Jonathan Dowdall turned state's witness.

The closing of the prosecution’s case in the Regency murder trial yesterday leaves a huge body of evidence for the Special Criminal Court to weigh up in the coming weeks.

Over the last 50 days, the three-judge panel has heard detailed testimony from 140 witnesses, seen hundreds of video clips and listened to hours of surveillance tapes. The prosecution meticulously assembled all of this to present what it claims is proof that Gerry Hutch is guilty of the murder of David Byrne, and that two co-accused men helped the operation. All three men deny the charges.
