Trevor Noone pleaded guilty to his manslaughter
A man has been jailed for 13 years for the manslaughter of Daniel McAnaspie who was in the care of the Health Service Executove (HSE) when he was killed in 2010.
Trevor Noone from Dublin 15 was originally charged with his murder, but the Director of Public Prosecutions (SPP) accepted his plea to the lesser charge.
Daniel’s sister Nikita was joined by a large group of family and friends outside court after the sentence was handed down.
She gave her reaction: "He was a lovely young fella, he didn’t deserve to die the way he did.
"But them two are absolute f***king scumbags are going to rot in hell".
Noone was one of two men who lured her 17-year-old brother to his death on February 26th 2010.
He had been drinking with him earlier that night and punched him in the face after the Dublin teenager revealed he had been in a fight with his relative.
Daniel was stabbed to death with the blade of a garden shears at Tolka Valley Park in Blanchardstown.
His body was found in a ditch in Meath three months later.
Noone’s co-accused Richard Dekker, who is also from Dublin 15, is serving a life sentence having been found guilty of his murder.
Another of Daniel’s sisters, Caitríona, says she is relieved they are behind bars: “We’d just like to thank everybody for the support over the last few years, especially the last couple of weeks.
“Justice has finally been done for my brother, so he can rest in peace now”.
