A man charged with the murder of Gerald Corrigan is due to stand trial next January.

Terence Whall from Bryngwran is accused of shooting the retired lecturer outside his home near Holyhead in the early hours of Good Friday.

Mr Corrigan (74) died from his injuries at the Royal Stoke University Hospital on 11 May.

Whall appeared at Mold Crown Court via video link from a remand centre in Liverpool on Monday morning (1st July) – he spoke only to confirm he could hear proceedings.

No formal plea was entered – but Whall’s defence told the court he denied responsibility and would enter a ”firm not guilty plea”.

Judge Rhys Rowlands remanded Whall in custody until a plea hearing on Thursday 5th September. A provisional trial date was set for Tuesday 14th January 2020 – it’s due to last for up to four weeks.
