He is the first person to be jailed in relation to the brutal murder of teenager Keane Mulready Woods.

Yet, despite pleading guilty to cleaning up and removing evidence from the scene of the killing at his home in Drogheda, father-of-eight Gerard ‘Ged’ McKenna will be a free man in just over a year.

So, who is McKenna and what was his role in the shocking murder of the 17-year-old, whose dismembered remains were discovered in a sports bag, the boot of a car and on wasteland in the days and months after he disappeared?

Nicola Tallant talks with Irish Independent journalist Robin Schiller who covered the sentencing of McKenna. He tells me about a chaotic crime scene, a disorganised clean-up and a phonecall from a gangland madman.
