Former Louth Village resident found guilty of murder his former partner

A 35-year-old man who lived for a time in Louth Village was yesterday found guilty of the murder of his former partner almost five years ago.

Vesel Jahiri, who is originally from Kosovo, stabbed 25-year-old Anna Finnegan to death on 21 September 2012.

He was also found guilty of assaulting her brother, Karl Finnegan.

He was excluded from the courtroom at the Central Criminal Court for the closing stages of the trial after punching the prosecuting senior counsel in the face.

Four guards in riot gear surrounded him in court as the verdict was delivered.

He tried to shout at the jury before the verdict was returned.

According to RTÉ News, the registrar proceeded to read the verdicts out as Jahiri continued to shout at the jury about 999 calls.

The judge then ordered that he be removed from the court.

He will be sentenced at a later date.
