A couple are to appear in court as part of a fraud inquiry linked to the murder of Gerald Corrigan.

The retired lecturer was shot with a crossbow outside his home at Gof Du near Holyhead on Good Friday last year. Terence Whall was jailed for at least 31 years for murder and perverting the course of justice.

Detectives say a parallel investigation was launched a month after the shooting – a file was submitted to the Crown Prosecution Service earlier this year.

A 50 year-old local man has been summonsed to face six offences of fraud by false representation – his partner, a 49 year-old woman, has been summonsed for a money laundering offence.

The couple will appear before Caernarfon magistrates on Thursday 13th August.

DS Arwel Hughes from North Wales Police said: ”Marie Bailey, the partner of Gerald Corrigan, Neale his son and Fiona his daughter have been fully updated and we would request that their privacy remains respected at this time.”
