Father-of-three David Walsh was found bleeding severely from his neck and mouth outside his home in Australia.
The trial of an Irish woman accused of the murder of her fiance is set to begin in Australia on Tuesday morning. Cathrina (Tina) Cahill, 25, originally from Co Wexford, stands accused of the murder of fellow Wexford-native David Walsh in February of last year.
Walsh died of injuries sustained outside his home in the suburbs of Sydney, Australia, between February 17 and February 18 of 2017.
The father-of-three, whose nickname was "Motcha," was found by paramedics bleeding severely from his neck and mouth outside his home. Despite attempts to revive him, the Enniscorthy man died at the scene.
Neighbors reported that they heard glass breaking and people screaming before emergency services arrived.
His fiancee Cahill has pleaded not guilty to the murder. She had been remanded in prison in Sydney where the trial was due to begin on Monday before being postponed to Tuesday.
Walsh, a builder, had moved from Ireland to Australia in 2012.
“It was so painful, she was hardly able to talk,” Cahill’s father said after her brief hearing in 2017.
“She is in bits, it was so painful to listen to her. It was painful, too painful.”
