The Special Criminal Court has reserved judgment until next month in the trial of two men accused of the murder of Limerick businessman Roy Collins over five years ago.

Ms Justice Iseult o'Malley, presiding at the three judge court, said the court would give judgment in the case on July 15th next.

 Wayne Dundon (36), of Lenihan Avenue, Prospect and Nathan Killeen (24) of Hyde Road, Prospect, pleaded not guilty to the murder of 35-year-old Roy Collins at Coin Castle Amusements, Roxboro Road Shopping Centre on April 9, 2009.

The non-jury court  heard during the trwenty nine day trial that Mr Collins was at work around noon that day when a gunman entered his amusement arcade and discharged a single shot, hitting him in the chest. He was conscious for a time, but his life could not be saved.

It was the prosecution case that Wayne Dundon directed the murder from prison, Nathan Killeen was the getaway driver and another man, James Dillon, was the gunman.
