THE TRIAL OF two people charged with supplying model Katy French with cocaine on the night she became fatally ill has been adjourned – the third time that the trial has been pushed back.

Kieran Ducie, 40, of Kilmessan in Co Meath and 29-year-old Ann Corcoran, of Clonliffe Road in Dublin are both charged with supplying cocaine to the late model, and for failing to summon medical assistance for her after she became ill in the early hours of December 2, 2007.

French died at Our Lady’s Hospital in Navan on December 6 of that year after four days in intensive care.

The pair are also charged with conspiring to possess cocaine for the purposes of supplying it to others, RTÉ News reports.

The two defendants have been granted legal aid for the trial; each has been assigned two barristers.

The trial had previously been postponed until February after the two defendants applied to obtain visual copies of interviews and transcripts sent to the Director of Public Prosecutions.

When it does take place, the trial – at Trim Circuit Criminal Court – could last up to a fortnight.
