TWO MEN HAVE been charged in connection with the 2009 murder of Roy Collins in Limerick.

Wayne Dundon, 34, from Lenehan Avenue in Limerick and Nathan Killeen, 22, from Hyde Road in Limerick appeared before the Special Criminal Court this morning.

They were remanded in custody to appear in court again in April, RTÉ News reports.

Collins, 34, was shot dead at the family business in Limerick in April 2009, apparently because members of his family had testified against gangland boss Wayne Dundon during a trial in 2005.

In 2011, five men were arrested over the killing of Collins as well as the murder of Shane Geoghegan and James Cronin who were also shot dead in Limerick.

The Collins family has since left the country after repeated threats were made against their lives. They had been under 24-hour armed guard but have now moved abroad under a witness relocation programme.

Comments have been disabled as court proceedings are now active.
