A Sligo man has been found guilty of murder after he stabbed a talented Sligo musician to death.
According to today’s Irish Independent, Keith Brady (32), of Cartron Estate, Sligo, had denied murdering Martin 'Matt' Kivlehan on August 2 or 3, 2015, at Mr Kivlehan's home at New Apartments, Holborn Street, Sligo.
His plea of guilty of manslaughter was rejected by the DPP.
It took a jury of eight men and four women just one hour and 25 minutes to find him guilty of murder following a two-week trial at the Central Criminal Court.
Mr Justice Alex Owens sentenced Keith Brady to the mandatory term of life imprisonment.
