WICKLOW

A 27-year-old accused of murdering a man in Co Wicklow three years ago told gardai (police) he drove the victim to where he was killed but did not witness the shooting.

Michael Dickenson, of no fixed abode, has pleaded not guilty to murdering Steven O' Meara at Ballydonnell Wood, Red Cross, Co Wicklow on or about August 6, 2009.

Mr O'Meara (26) a father-of-three from Rosehill in Wicklow town, was last seen on that date.
Grave.

His body was found by gardai five months later, on Christmas Eve, in an isolated wooded area at Ballydonnell, Red Cross.

It is the prosecution's case that Dickenson drove Mr O'Meara out to the remote Ballydonnell Woods, where he was shot by another man, who then helped the accused drag the body into a very shallow grave.

The court has previously heard evidence Mr O'Meara was asked to collect a debt of E15,000 from the accused's brother, Paddy Byrne, which was owed to drug dealers in Dublin and that he was to be paid E2,000for doing so.
