Kildare was arrested last Friday morning in the Kimmage area of Dublin before being brought to court.He was brought to Rathmines Garda station where he was charged with the murder of Margot Seery at Kenilworth Square in Dublin on October 8, 1994. Ms Seery was 49 at the time of her death.Kelly appeared before Judge Michael Walsh at Dublin District Court as Detective Garda Gabriel Duffy indicated that the matter would proceed by way of trial on indictment and that the book of evidence had yet to be completed.Given the nature of the charge, Judge Walsh said he would remand the defendant in custody to appear at Cloverhill District Court next week. Bail can only be adjudicated on by the High Court.Granting free legal aid, the Judge said he was taking account of the fact that defence solicitor Stephen Walsh said that Mr Kelly “has mental health difficulties” and he ordered that all medical assistance should be granted to the accused while in custody.The body of Margot Seery was exhumed from Rathkeale Cemetery on September 16, 2014 and taken to University Hospital Limerick where a post-mortem examination was performed by deputy State pathologist, Dr Michael Curtis.Following the post-mortem examination, the remains were re-interred and a man was arrested and questioned in relation to the death. A file was then prepared for the DPP which subsequently led to the charges being made against Howard Kelly.

MBB : Syracuse at Marquette breakdown

first_img Comments Beat writer predictionsTony OliveroMarquette 73, Syracuse 69Everything that could have gone wrong for this Syracuse team since its 18-0 start has gone wrong. It’s a true time of reflection, and against maybe the most overachieving team in the conference, the team that may be underachieving the most won’t have the mental fortitude on the road.Andrew L. JohnMarquette 76, Syracuse 73Seton Hall may have been the wake-up call Syracuse needed, but Marquette sees blood in the water.Brett LoGiuratoMarquette 81, Syracuse 72Panic. Spelled B-O-E-H-E-I-M.

That doesn’t best Jardine’s 2.0 ratio, but heading into this game, Jardine has looked like anything but a seasoned point guard.Shooting GuardBrandon Triche6-4, 205, SO.10.3 PPG, 3.1 APGDarius Johnson-Odom6-2, 215, JR.16.5 PPG, 2.7 APGIt doesn’t get any easier for the top of the Orange’s 2-3 zone after Jeremy Hazell shredded it Tuesday. Johnson-Odom is perhaps the most underrated guard in the conference, and his slashing will test Triche and Scoop Jardine’s defensive will early.Small ForwardKris Joseph6-7, 210, JR.15.1 PPG, 4.9 RPGJimmy Butler6-7, 220, JR.15.5 PPG, 6.4 RPGButler led the Golden Eagles with 21 points on 50 percent shooting from the field and 100 percent shooting from the line in the tough loss to Connecticut Tuesday.
