A jury has been sworn in to hear the trial of a man accused of murdering Detective Garda Adrian Donohoe seven years ago.
Aaron Brady, from New Road, Crossmaglen, Co Armagh, has pleaded not guilty to capital murder and robbery.
Last Saturday marked the seventh anniversary of Det Garda Adrian Donohoe’s death.
He was killed in the line of duty outside Lordship Credit Union in Bellurgan, Co. Louth on the night of January 25th 2013.
Aaron Brady pleaded not guilty to a charge of capital murder this afternoon.
The 27-year-old also denies a charge of robbery, which is alleged to have taken place at the same location on the same date.
Potential jurors were told there would be extensive media coverage, and warned to remain impartial throughout what’s expected to be a 16-week trial.
An enlarged jury of nine women and six men was then sworn in to hear the trial, which is due to open tomorrow morning.
