Verdict expected today in Roy Collins murder trial

Murder victim Roy Collins

A verdict is due today in the non-jury trial of two men accused of murdering Limerick businessman Roy Collins.

Wayne Dundon of Lenihan Avenue and his co-accused Nathan Killeen of Hyde Road, both in Prospect, deny any part in the killing at the Roxboro Shopping Centre on April 9, 2009.

Roy Collins was killed by a single shot to the chest fired by a gunman who entered the Coincastle amusements at around midday on April 9, 2009.

It is the prosecution's case that Wayne Dundon ordered the hit from prison, Nathan Killeen acted as the getaway driver and that another man James Dillon was the gunman

Roy's father Steve Collins, who ran The Steering Wheel pub next door to the arcade, gave evidence of his son's last moments of consciousness.

He said he asked Roy if he had seen who had shot him and he replied no before telling him how much he loved him.

The trial was held before three judges at the non-jury Special Criminal Court which is due to hand down its verdicts this morning.
