O'Reilly awaits decision on legal aid for appeal16/10/2012 - 11:15:33
Joe O'Reilly, who was convicted of murdering his wife in 2004, has yet to secure lawyers as part of his bid to have his conviction overturned as a miscarriage of justice.
He was not at the Court of Criminal Appeal when his case came up for mention today.
He has lodged a statement of means to try to secure legal aid, but the court has put the case back for submissions on whether the scheme applies to him.
Joe O'Reilly is serving a life sentence for the murder of his wife Rachel who was bludgeoned to death at their home in the Naul, North Dublin in October 2004.
