Regency Hotel Murder Case Facing Possible Retrial


Share this article


The Regency Hotel murder trial has been adjourned for three days as the court heard ‘unprecedented conundrums’ have arisen.

Patrick Hutch Junior of Champion’s Avenue in Dublin 1 denies murdering David Byrne at a boxing weigh in two years ago.

Mr Hutch’s barrister has said he will probably apply for the trial to be adjourned outright - meaning Patrick Hutch may face a retrial.

Dad of two David Byrne was shot dead at a boxing weigh at the Hotel in February 2016.

It’s the Prosecution’s case that 25 year old Patrick Hutch of Champions Avenue in Dublin 1 was the man photographed dressed as a woman at the Regency that day holding a gun.

He has pleaded not guilty and his trial began around 5 weeks ago.

It was adjourned two weeks ago to allow for the disclosure of emails between four gardai involved in the case.

It was due to resume this morning but the court heard ‘unprecedented conundrums’ have arisen.

Mr Hutch’s barrister told the Judge in all probability he will be looking for the trial to be adjourned outright, meaning he’s looking for a retrial.

Judge Tony Hunt noted the trial was in ‘unusual territory’ and put the case back until Thursday.
