Man accused of murder found dead

A MAN accused of murdering a 31-year-old father has been found dead.

The body of Timothy Kelleher (25), from Maryborough Hill, Douglas, Cork, was found in a flat near UCC following a party at the weekend.

Gardai are not treating the death at Minerva Terrace as suspicious.

Two weeks ago, Kelleher was charged with the murder of Mark Hanlon (31), a father of one, who died after being stabbed during a row on Infirmary Road in Cork on May 6.

Mr Kelleher's Requiem Mass takes place this morning at 11am at the Church of the Incarnation, Frankfield.

Gardai are currently awaiting toxicology results to confirm what led to Mr Kelleher's death.
