A man accused of the murder of Detective Garda Adrian Donohoe in a shooting in 2013 has been sent forward for trial to the Central Criminal Court.

Aaron Brady, 27, from New Road in Crossmaglen, Co Armagh was served with a book of evidence when he appeared before Judge Victor Blake at Cloverhill District Court last week

He had been charged earlier this year with the murder of a member of an Garda Siochana, namely Adrian Donohoe, in the course of his duty at Lordship Credit Union, Bellurgan, Co Louth on January 25, 2013.

The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) had directed trial on indictment.

A four-volume book of evidence was served on him in court by Det Sergeant Mark Philips.

Judge Blake noted the DPP was requesting that Mr Brady would be returned for trial to the next sitting of the Central Criminal Court on the single charge in the book of evidence.

He told him he was sending him forward for trial, in custody, to the next term of the Central Criminal Court which begins in October.
