June 26, 1996, in Dublin, Ireland
Two men, Brian Meehan and Paul Ward, were convicted for her murder in 1999 and 1998. Ward's conviction was overturned in 2002, but he remains in prison, where he is serving a 12-year sentence for taking part in a prison riot. John Gilligan, a known Dublin drug trafficker, was also charged but was acquitted because of lack of evidence on March 16, 2001, despite the judge's assertion that there were "grave suspicions" of Gilligan's complicity in the killing.
