A 26 year old man has been found guilty of the murder of 24 year old father to be Conor Quinn who died after he sustained a stab wound to the chest on Bridge Street in Mallow, Co Cork on July 12th, 2018.
Jurors at the trial of Tyler ‘Tiggy’ Jackson took just under seven hours to return a 10 -2 verdict at a sitting of the Central Criminal Court in Cork this afternoon.
Mr Jackson, formerly of Ballydaheen West, Mallow in Co Cork was found guilty by majority verdict of the murder of Mr Quinn, who was a Galway native who resided in Tipperary town.
Ms Justice Eileen Creedon thanked the jurors for their service and excused them from further jury service for a period of five years. The jurors had been given the option of finding Mr Jackson guilty or not guilty of murder or not guilty of murder but guilty of manslaughter.
Mr Jackson was remanded in custody for sentencing at 2pm next Tuesday. The case was adjourned to allow the family to prepare victim impact statements. There is a mandatory life sentence when a person is found guilty of murder.
