NEW TRIAL DATE FOR MAN ACCUSED OF KILLING ELAINE O’HARA
A new trial date has been fixed for the man accused of murdering childcare worker Elaine O’Hara in Dublin in 2012.
Graham Dwyer – a father of two from Kerrymount Close in Foxrock in Dublin – was to stand trial in April of next year but now been moved forward to January.
Defence Barrister Ronan Kennedy applied for the date to be moved in light of a recent failed bail application.
The 41-year-old architect is accused of murdering Elaine O’Hara – whose father is from Wexford Town – on August 22nd 2012.
Her remains were found on Killakee Mountain in Rathfarnham last September – 13 months after her disappearance.
The trial will now go ahead on January 19th next and it’s expected to last six weeks.
