Share this article


The prosecuting barrister in the Gareth Hutch murder trial has described his killing as a "shocking and brutal" act that involved planning and preparation.

Regina Keogh from Avondale House, Dublin; her brother Jonathan and Thomas Fox of Rutland Court, Dublin 1 deny murdering him in May 2016.

After a long trial before the non-jury Special Criminal Court, the prosecuting barrister began his closing speech this morning.

Gareth Hutch was shot dead on May 24th 2016 in the car park outside his home in Dublin’s north inner city.

Paul Burns SC told the three judges it wasn't sudden or a spur of the moment kind of thing.

He said it happened in broad daylight in a residential area and he described it as "brutal and shocking".

It is the prosecution’s case that Jonathan Keogh was one of two gunmen who killed him and that his sister Regina helped him get the use of a prosecution witness’ flat to stake out Mr. Hutch.

Mr. Burns claimed Thomas Fox retrieved the guns the night before and was in a white van the following day to help the gunmen afterwards.

For their roles, he said all three are accused and liable for murder and submitted they are guilty as charged.
