Galway farmer Michael Scott will be sentenced in two weeks' time for the manslaughter of his elderly aunt.
The 58-year-old from Gortanumera in Portumna had pleaded not guilty to murdering Chrissie Treacy by running her over with a JCB teleporter outside her farmhouse on April 27th.
He claimed he accidentally ran her over – insisting he did not see her and that it was a tragic farming accident.
The prosecution claimed he killed her because she was looking to formally partition prime farmland they co-owned in Portumna.
The jury eventually found him not guilty of murder, but guilty of manslaughter.
He was due to be sentenced this morning; however, the case has now been put back for two weeks to June 26th.
