Inquest Into The Death Of Mark Hennessy Deferred To Next Month

The inquest into the death of Mark Hennessy, who abducted and killed Jastine Valdez, which was expected to resume today at the Dublin Coroner's Court, has been deferred until next January.

The 40 year old kidnapped the 24 year old student, originally from the Philippines, as she walked home in Enniskerry in May last year, before strangling her to death and dumping her body in Rathmichael in South County Dublin.

GSOC and the DPP previously ruled that no action should be taken against a detective who shot Mr. Hennessy the following day in Cherrywood.
