A man who lured Keane Mulready-Woods to his death has been jailed for ten years, while another man who helped the gang behind his murder was jailed for seven.
Keane Mulready-Woods was 17 years old when he was murdered in a house in Drogheda, Co. Louth just over three years ago.
Keane Mulready-Woods was reported missing on the 13th of January 2020.
Some of his dismembered remains were found later that day.
More were found the next day, and over one year later, a search of waste ground near the house where he was murdered resulted in the discovery of more of his remains in a sports bag.
At the time of the murder, Paul Crosby and Gerard Cruise both lived in the same estate where he was killed – Rathmullen Park in Drogheda.
Crosby essentially lured Keane to the so-called “murder house,” while Cruise assisted in a number of ways, including the purchase of licence plates for a car used to transport his dismembered remains.
The court accepted they weren’t in the house at the time of the murder but felt their actions were of considerable assistance to those behind it.
Crosby was handed a 10.5-year prison sentence, while Cruise got 7.5 years. The final six months of both their sentences were suspended.
