Judge threatens to strike out murder charge

A Limerick judge has warned he may strike out a murder charge against an accused man if a book of evidence is not presented against him in two weeks time.

David Bridgeman of O'Malley Park in Southill is charged with the murder of 36 year old Charlie Molloy who was found dead near his home in Maigue Way, John Carew Park, Southill on the 23rd of February.

In court today, the judge heard from Inspector Tom ‘O Brien that the Director of Public Prosecutions has still not completed the book of evidence against Mr. Bridgeman and asked for a further two week adjournment.

The accused has been remanded in custody until May 21st.

Judge Tom O`Donnell had previously warned the DPP in relation to this matter on Apr 23rd.
