THE TEENAGER charged with the murder of Aran Island native Ciaran Conneely in Boston in October has denied the charges.

Conneely had been living in the US for 12 years when he was found dead near his home in Dorchester. He died from gunshot wounds.

John Graham, 17, has been charged with first-degree murder, the unlawful possession of a firearm, and armed assault with the intent to rob. Appearing in a Boston court yesterday, he denied the charges, the Irish Emigrant reports.

Graham has also been charged in connection with the separate non-fatal shooting of two men on 30 October.

He is being held without bail and his trial for the murder of Ciaran Conneely is due to start in January 2013.
