The man accused of murdering Detective Garda Adrian Donohoe during an armed robbery has told the court he did not kill him.

Aaron Brady, from Crossmaglen, Co. Armagh, took to the stand this morning to give evidence.

It is the prosecution’s case that he shot Det Garda Adrian Donohoe during an armed robbery outside Lordship Credit Union in Co. Louth on January 25th 2013.

The 28-year-old took the stand this morning to give evidence as part of his defence.

His barrister, Michael O’Higgins, began by asking his client if he killed Det Donohoe.

‘No, I did not,’ was Mr. Brady’s reply.

Earlier in the trial, a barman called Daniel Cahill gave evidence from NYC, claiming he heard Mr. Brady say he shot a garda.

Today, Mr. Brady swore on his son’s life that he never said that. He described Mr. Cahill as being a ‘little lying psychopath.’

He said he didn’t like him, and never would have confided in him.

He also claimed Mr. Cahill attacked him in his bed one night for engaging in a threesome with his friend’s girlfriend, which he denied.

Mr. Brady also admitted lying to gardaí about his whereabouts on the night of the shooting because, he claimed, he was engaged in illegal fuel laundering at the time.

When asked why he moved to the US a few months after the shooting, he said he wanted to get away from all the speculation that he was involved.
