Deliberations Begin In Nadine Lott Murder Trial

A judge has told a jury in the trial of a man accused of murdering his former partner to act clinically, dispassionately and without sympathy as deliberations get underway this morning.

Daniel Murtagh of Melrose Grove in Clondalkin, has pleaded guilty to the manslaughter of Nadine Lott at her Arklow home before Christmas in 2019, but denies the more serious charge of murder.

During the trial the jury was told Ms Lott suffered a sustained and violent attack" at her home.

She later died in hospital from her injuries.

He admits causing her death, but the jury will have to decide whether he intended to kill or cause her serious harm.
