‘Fat’ Frankie murder trial to begin this week

The trial of a man who has been charged with the same murder twice will finally get underway after months of delays.

A Jury was sworn in today at the Central Criminal Court at Cloverhill Courthouse for the trial of 25 year old Gary Campion of Pineview Gardens, Moyross who is charged with the gangland murder of 21 year old `Fat` Frankie Ryan in Moyross on the 17th of September 2006.

Mr. Ryan was ambushed and shot in the back of the head as he sat in his car at the Pineview Gardens estate.

In 2007 Campion had the charge of murder against him dropped after the book of evidence was not presented by the Gardai on time however the murder charge was renewed later in the year.

The trial is due to begin on this Wednesday. Mr Justice Paul Carney will preside.
