Notorious criminal brothers Wayne and John Dundon have moved to appeal their convictions for making threats to kill.
Wayne Dundon, aged 37, of Lenihan Avenue, Ballinacurra Weston, was found guilty by the Special Criminal Court in 2012 of threatening Alice Collins that he would kill or cause serious harm to her sons Gareth and Jimmy Collins at Hyde Avenue, Limerick, on September 30, 2010.
The non-jury court also found him guiltyof the intimidation of potential prosecution witnesses Alice and April Collins .
Wayne’s younger brother John, aged 33, of Hyde Rd, Limerick, had also been found guilty of threatening to kill April Collins at Hyde Rd on April 3/4, 2011.
The Special Criminal Court sentenced Wayne to six years imprisonment and John to five and a half years in 2012.
The Court of Appeal reserved judgment on the brothers’ appeals against conviction yesterday.
However, much of the day’s proceedings was taken up with preliminary motions to adduce additional evidence and to expand Wayne Dundon’s grounds of appeal.
The Court of Appeal refused to allow the motions and stated that it will give full reasons for its decision at a later date.
