Two in court on Roy Collins shooting charges

Two Limerick men have appeared at the Special Criminal Court charged over the fatal shooting of Roy Collins.

Wayne Dundon of Lenihan Avenue, Prospect and Nathan Killeen of Hyde Road, Prospect, are accused of murdering the father of two at the Coin Castle amusement complex at the Roxboro shopping centre on April 9th, 2009.

This morning Wayne Dundon and Nathan Killeen were brought before the non jury Special Criminal Court charged with the murder of businessman Roy Collins four years ago.

He was shot dead at the Coin Castle arcade  the apparent motive being that a member of his family had reported a crime to gardai implicating a member of a criminal gang.

The Special Criminal Court has remanded the 2 men in custody until April 23rd when it's expected they'll be served with the book of evidence.

Both men are currently serving time in prison on seperate matters.

Wayne Dundon's barrister Shane O'Callaghan asked for media restraint and told the court that a public representative had made a statement on local radio in Limerick congratulating the gardai in bringing his client to court.

No order was made but Mr Justice Paul Butler said clearly there shouldn't be media comments on the merits of the upcoming trial of the case.
