Karol Kelly murder defendants to apply for compassionate bail
9 Jul 2018
A solicitor told Derry Magistrate's Court today that two brothers who have been in custody for almost five months charged with murdering Karol Kelly in the Rosemount area of the city five months ago, are to make compassionate bail applications later this month. Gary Anderson, 21, and Sean Anderson, 19, both of them from Grafton Street, are jointly charged with murdering father of five, Karol Kelly, outside a house in Grafton Street in the early hours of last March 4. The two brothers have been in custody in Hydebank Young Offender's Centre since they were arrested and charged with Mr. Kelly's murder. Their solicitor Kevin Casey told District Judge Greg McCourt that he had planned to make a compassionate bail application for the two brothers today however it could not proceed as the defence required further medical evidence in relation to the planned application. Mr. Casey said he now planned to make his video link bail application on July 23. Both defendants were remanded in continuing custody until then. Meanwhile a third co-defendant, a juvenile who cannot be named because of his age,, who is also charged with Mr. Kelly's murder, had his application for bail refused at the High Court in Belfast last week.
