A 27-year-old man has admitted facilitating the murder of Keane Mulready-Woods.
Paul Crosby, with an address at Rathmullen Park in Drogheda, County Louth, was due to stand trial for murder but pleaded guilty to the lesser charge today.
Keane’s mother reported him missing on the 13th of January 2020.
Later that evening, human remains were found inside a sports bag in Coolock in Dublin. A human skull was found in the boot of a burning car in Drumcondra the following day and more remains were found last year, near the house where it’s believed he was murdered.
The remains were a match for Keane.
Paul Crosby, a well-known criminal in the Drogheda area, was due to stand trial early next year for his murder but when he appeared before the non-jury court today, a lesser charge of facilitating the murder was put to him and he pleaded guilty to it.
His sentence hearing will take place on the 23rd of next month.
Another man, 47-year-old Gerard Cruise, who also has an address at Rathmullan Park, Drogheda, will be arraigned on the 13th of January.
He was also charged with Keane’s murder.
