Gardaí awaiting forensic results in O'Gorman murder case

Tom O'Gorman.

Gardaí say they are still awaiting the results of some forensic analysis in the case of an Italian man accused of murdering his landlord in Dublin.

Saverio Bellante is charged with killing Tom O'Gorman at his home in Castleknock in January.

The body of Tom O'Gorman, a researcher and former journalist, was found inside his home in the early hours of January 12, 2014.

A post mortem revealed he had been beaten and stabbed to death.

Saverio Bellante, who rented a room at Mr O'Gorman's house, was arrested and charged with his murder.

He appeared in court today, where he was due to be served with a book containing all the evidence gathered by investigating Gardaí.

However, lawyers for the Director of Public Prosecutions said they were still awaiting certain statements and the results of some forensic tests before the book will be complete.

The court heard the case was a serious and complex one and Gardaí were given another two weeks to complete their work.
