Insanity to be an issue in O’Gorman case, judge hears
Saverio Bellante (35) accused of killing journalist in Dublin last year
Saverio Bellante: charged with killing Tom O’Gorman at a house in Castleknock.
Lawyers for the man charged with murdering journalist Tom O’Gorman have said insanity will be an issue in the case, which will be short as a result.
Saverio Bellante (35) is accused of murdering Mr O’Gorman on January 11th or 12th last year at the house they shared at Beech Park Avenue, Castleknock in Dublin.
The accused was Mr O’Gorman’s tenant.
He told Mr Justice Paul Carney that a trial date had been set for December 14th next but asked for liberty to apply for an earlier date. The judge granted the request.
Mr Guerin was also granted a request to transfer his client’s legal aid from one firm of solicitors to another.
