A man has been extradited from the UK and charged with the murder of Gareth Hutch in north inner-city Dublin.

His death came during a series of killings between the Hutch and Kinahan crime gangs.

In May 2016, Gareth Hutch was getting into his car at the Avondale flat complex in Dublin when he was shot dead.

The 35-year-old father of one was a nephew of Gerry 'The Monk' Hutch.

Today a 31-year-old man was extradited from Britain and brought before the Dublin District Court under armed escort charged with his murder.

The court heard Jonathon Keogh, from Dublin's north inner-city, was arrested of foot of a European Arrest Warrant at Casement Aerodrome in Baldonell at 2.21pm on Thursday afternoon.

A garda told the judge he was brought to Clondalkin garda station where he was charged with Gareth Hutch's murder and made no reply after he was cautioned.

Mr Keogh is the third person to be charged with Gareth Hutch's murder.

His sister, 39-year-old Regina Keogh of Kings Inn Street in Dublin, was charged in June.

While another man - 30-year-old Thomas Fox of Rutland Court - has been sent forward for trial also accused of his murder.
