Ruling expected in Aidan McAnespie case

A RULING is expected to be delivered later this month on whether a man accused of the manslaughter of Aiden McAnespie is to stand trial.

There was a large presence of police at Dungannon Magistrates Court for the last stage of the Preliminary Inquiry in the case.

David Jonathan Holden (50), whose address is given as his lawyer’s offices in Belfast, is charged with the unlawful killing of Aidan McAnespie, who was on his way to a GAA match when he was shot moments after walking thriough the checkpoint at Aughnacloy.


Judge Amanda Brady said she would take time to consider all the evidence and submissions in this matter to establish if there is a case to answer and that she would give a written ruling in due course.

The hearing was attended by family members of Mr McAnespie and by the Fermanagh and South Tyrone MP, Michelle Gildernew.
