A Dublin man from the Ballyfermot area has been jailed for five years for obstructing a murder investigation.

Bernard Locke of Ramillies Road, Ballyfermot admitted to stabbing Christopher Jackson 70 times, and is currently serving a life sentence. 

Christopher Jackson’s body was wrapped in bin bags and hidden inside a wardrobe at an apartment on Prussia Street in Dublin in September 2012.

Last November, Bernard Locke's brother Anthony, of the same Ballyfermot address, was found guilty of cleaning the crime scene and helping to hide the body.

The 42-year-old was handed an eight year sentence with the final three years suspended, earlier today.
