A man has pleaded not guilty to a double murder in Co Louth.

Jason O’Driscoll from Richmond Avenue in Dublin is accused of murdering two young men five years ago.

The bodies of 31-year-old Anthony Burnett and 25-year-old Joseph Redmond were found inside a burnt out car at Ravensdale Park in Dundalk on the night of Wednesday March 7th 2012.

Both men were from Ballybough in Dublin.

Jason O’Driscoll - who’s originally from Fairview in Dublin but spent some time in Newry - was later arrested and charged with the double murder.

When the charges were put to him in court this morning, he said: “I’m innocent, your honour. Not guilty”.

A jury of seven men and five women was then sworn in to hear his trial, which is expected to take between three and four weeks.

Alex Owens, whose prosecuting on behalf of the DPP, will open his case when the jurors return to court at 2pm tomorrow.
