The trial of a man accused of killing a retired lecturer with a crossbow is underway.

Gerald Corrigan was shot outside his remote home near Holyhead in the early hours of Good Friday last year. The 74 year-old, originally from Lancashire, died from his injures in hospital nearly a month later.

Mr Corrigan, who specialised in photography and video at Blackpool And The Fylde College, moved to Anglesey over twenty years ago.

Terence Whall (38) of Bryngwran denies murdering Mr Corrigan and conspiracy to pervert the course of justice with three other men.

Martin Roberts (34) of Bangor, Darren Jones (41) of Penrhosgarnedd and Gavin Jones (36) of Bangor are also accused of perverting the course of justice by torching a vehicle, which was later found burnt out near a quarry at Llanllechid.

All four defendants have also been charged with conspiracy to commit arson, which they have also denied.

The jury at Mold Crown Court was sworn in before the prosecution opens its case on Wednesday. The trial is expected to continue for up to five weeks.
