THE jury in the trial of two men accused of the attempted robbery of a cash van during which their alleged accomplice was killed has been discharged.

Darren Keane (25) of Foxdene Avenue, Clondalkin and John Boylan (25) Gandon Court, Lucan had pleaded not guilty to attempted robbery and possession of a sawn off shot gun at Foxborough Road, Lucan on May 15, 2009.

It was the second day of the trial at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court when a juror indicated they knew someone involved in the case.

Judge Mary Ellen Ring discharged the jury and excused them from service for two years. She adjourned the case to Monday when a fresh jury panel will be sworn in.
