Judge to sentence duo in Katy French case

Katy French.

Two people arrested by Gardaí during the investigation into the death of model Katy French will be sentenced later today.

Kieron Ducie of Lambertstown Manor, Kilmessan, Co Meath, and Ann Corcoran of Tolka Road, Clonliffe Road, in Dublin have admitted procuring another man to possess cocaine in December 2007.

It is five years since Katy French collapsed at a house in Kilmessan, Co Meath, suffering fatal brain damage.

A post mortem revealed traces of cocaine in her body.

Both Kieran Ducie and Ann Corcoran are charged with procuring a man named Russell Memery, to possess cocaine for the purpose of sale or supply to another.

Memery who had been living at Yellow Clay Manor, Navan, has already been given a two-and-half-year suspended sentence.

Judge Michael O'Shea will hear evidence of the charge faced by Mr Ducie and Ms Corcoran at Trim Circuit Court today, before handing down sentence.
