A jury in the trial of a Dublin man accused of murdering a 61-year-old woman has been warned the case will involve evidence of dismemberment.

Kieran Greene of Mountainview Park, Rathfarnham denies murdering Patricia O’Connor at the same address on May 29th, 2017.

Mr Greene is one of four people on trial, but the 34-year-old is the only one accused of murdering Ms O’Connor.

His three co-accused have all pleaded not guilty to impeding the apprehension or prosecution of Mr Greene, knowing or believing him to have murdered her.

The judge warned potential jurors that there would be evidence of “the dismemberment of body parts.”

Stephanie O’Connor of Millmount Court, Dundrum Road, Dublin 14 is accused of disguising herself as Patricia in order to conceal the fact she was dead.

Louise O’Connor of the same address is accused of agreeing to or acquiescing in Stephanie disguising herself for that alleged purpose.

The prosecution claims Keith Johnson of Avonbeg Gardens in Tallaght bought various tools, which were to be used to conceal Patricia’s remains.

He is also accused of refurbishing a bathroom at Mountainview Park, Rathfarnham in order to destroy or conceal evidence.

The trial is due to open tomorrow.

Reporting from Frank Greaney at the Central Criminal Court.
