Two more men have appeared in court, charged with conspiracy to pervert the course of justice following the murder of Gerald Corrigan.
In all, four men have now been charged in connection with the crossbow shooting outside Mr Corrigan’s home near Holyhead on Good Friday. The retired lecturer died from his injuries in hospital on 11th May.
Detectives say Darren Jones (41) and Martin Roberts (34), both from Bangor, were charged on Tuesday night (23rd July) following ”ongoing consultation” with prosecutors.
They’re accused of conspiring with another man, Gavin Jones (36) from Bryngwran, by torching a Land Rover Discovery vehicle linked to the murder. It was found burnt out near a quarry at Llanllechid on 3rd June.
Both men spoke only to confirm their names, ages and contact details during a brief hearing at Llandudno magistrates court on Wednesday lunchtime.
No applications were made for bail. Jones and Roberts were remanded in custody for a month until they appear at Mold Crown Court on Friday 23rd August.
The man charged with Mr Corrigan’s murder, Terence Whall (38), also of Bryngwran, is on remand until 5th September, when he’s due to enter a plea.
The court heard on Tuesday there was a ‘direct link’ between the cases between Gavin Jones and Terence Whall. But at an earlier hearing, Whall’s defence indicated he would deny all charges.
DCI Brian Kearney, whose leading the biggest murder hunt on Anglesey since 2001, said he still believed ”there are still people in our community who have key information in relation to this murder.”
He added: ”Please come forward and speak to the investigation team in total confidence…I would like to take this opportunity to once again thank all those who have assisted the enquiry to date.”
Anyone with information should contact the major incident room, based at Llangefni CID, on 101, quoting reference no. X052857.
