The jury in the inquest into the death of Jastine Valdez's killer has returned a narrative verdict.
40-year-old Mark Hennessy abducted and killed the 24-year old Wicklow student in May 2018, before being shot by a Garda in Dublin.
After around an hour and 20 minutes deliberating this evening, the jury returned a narrative verdict - stating the facts in the case.
They made six recommendations - including the appointment of a post-incident manager for similar events; a recommendation that all gardaí receive emergency response training; and that the civil defence should review their procedures in response to emergency situations.
Mark Hennessy was shot dead by a Garda while sitting in his car at Cherrywood in Dublin in May 2018, a day after he abducted and killed 24-year-old Filipino student Jastine Valdez from Enniskerry in Wicklow.
In her closing remarks, Dublin City Coroner Dr. Myra Cullinane said she will bring the jury's recommendations to the relevant agencies.
She said the events in the case were exceptionally unusual in our society.
She said the public was very moved by the plight of Jastine Valdez and the outcome of those events in May 2018 meant two families' lives had been changed irreparably.
