The wife of a man stabbed to death in Inchicore in Dublin five years ago has told the Central Criminal Court she pleaded with his attackers to stop.

Janette Cawley gave evidence of seeing Warren and Jeffrey Dumbrell pursuing her husband Christy into the flat complex where they lived.

Mrs Cawley said she saw a knife in Warren's hand and a long object in Jeffrey's hand and she screamed at her husband to keep running.

The jury also heard evidence that as the two men left the flats one of them told the victim's daughter: "Your daddy's gone now".

The Dumbrell brothers, from Emmet Place in Dublin, both deny murder.
