Man, 19, found guilty of 2016 Dublin murder

A jury has found a 19-year-old man guilty of murder for stabbing his best friend to death.

The six men and six women recorded a majority 11 to one verdict that Graham McEvoy of Captain's Road in Crumlin, murdered 23-year-old Paul "Paulie" Curran at Seagull House on Crumlin Road in Dublin on 16 July 2016 - writes rte.ie.

McEvoy pleaded guilty to manslaughter but his plea was rejected and he underwent a week-long trial at the Central Criminal Court.

It took the jury over eight hours to reach their majority verdict, shortly before 3pm this afternoon.

Mr Justice Patrick McCarthy thanked them and exempted them from jury service for ten years.

Prosecuting counsel Pieter LeVert BL asked for time for a statement to be prepared by the victim's family so Mr Justice McCarthy adjourned sentencing until tomorrow.

Having been found guilty of murder, McEvoy will receive a mandatory life sentence.

Following the verdict, members of McEvoy's family hugged him and broke down in tears.

As he was led away he told them: "don't worry, it's only an extra few years".
