A jury has heard it will be alleged a Dublin man dismembered his girlfriend’s mother after killing her and dumping her in a shallow grave.

Kieran Greene denies murdering 61-year-old grandmother Patricia O’Connor at the home they shared at Mountainview Park in Rathfarnham in May 2017.

Over four days in June 2017, Patricia O’Connors’ remains were found in nine locations over a 30km radius across the Dublin and Wicklow Mountains.

As body parts were being discovered, the jurors were told Mr Greene presented himself to gardaí and admitted killing her.

Prosecuting barrister Róisín Lacey told them he claimed it happened after she beat him with a hurley and that he dumped her in a shallow grave before dismembering her and scattering her body parts in the mountains.

His girlfriend, Patricia’s daughter Louise, her daughter Stephanie and Patricia’s ex Keith Johnson are all accused of impeding his apprehension or prosecution by helping him to cover up what’s alleged to have happened.

It will be alleged that Stephanie disguised herself as her grandmother afterwards to make it look like she was alive and that Louise agreed to allow her to do so.

Keith Johnson’s alleged to have bought various tools used to dismember the 61-year-old and he's also accused of refurbishing her bathroom to conceal evidence.

The trial could take up to seven weeks.
