THE jury in the trial of Southill man Anthony Kelly is expected to hear closing speeches at Limerick Circuit Court later today.

Kelly, 51, of 121 O’Malley Park has pleaded not guilty to posession of a semi-automatic glock pistol with intent to endanger life at his home on October 28, 2009.

It is the prosecution case that Kelly shot 29-year-old Michael Lynch ‘in the back’ following a row outside his home shortly after 7am.

Evidence in the trial, which is now in its fourth week, conluded last Friday and judge Carroll Moran has told the jury the “end is in sight”.

It is expected that lawyers for the prosecution and defence will address the seven men and five women this morning before the judge addresses them.

They will then begin their deliberations
