Nicola's father: Murder trial evidence 'does make your stomach churn'08/03/2013 - 07:59:07
The father of Nicola Furlong has said it has been difficult hearing evidence given in defence of the man charged with the murder of his daughter in Japan.
19 year old Richard Hinds, from Memphis, Tennessee in the US, is accused of killing the 21-year-old from Wexford in a Tokyo hotel room in May last year.
His former girlfriend is giving evidence at the trial today.
Nicola's parents and sister have been in attendance in Tokyo this week for the case.
Her father Andrew said it has been tough hearing the defence speak about his daughter and her friend who was there the night she died.
Mr Furlong said: "To be hearing what's being said and what they are making out, what the girls were up to, at times it does make your stomach churn.
"But we came here expecting the worst, because the defence is there for a reason, to blacken the girl's name and get your man off, or as small a sentence as possible."
