A man has confessed to killing a 72-year-old grandma whose body was tracked down in a consuming vehicle.
Michael Leonard, 63, of Hillcrest, Glenosheen, Kilmallock, Co Limerick, showed up at the Focal Crook Court for a short arraignment on Monday at which he answered, “blameworthy”, to the charge that he killed Mary O’Keeffe at Doneraile, Co Stopper, on February 4 last year.
The court heard no proof viewing the homicide as Mr Equity Paul McDermott dismissed condemning until December 14 whenever Ms O’Keefe’s family will have a chance to have an effect explanation.

At a bail hearing last year, Det Sgt James O’Shea said that gardaí and fire administrations were called to the location of a consuming vehicle where was Ms O’Keeffe’s body at 2.20pm on February 4, 2021. Mr Equity Robert Enthusiastic denied bail and Leonard stays in care.
During the bail hearing last year, Leonard’s protection counsel Marc Thompson Grolimund BL said that his client had a decent work record and that he had labored for quite some time for Coillte prior to turning into a specialist and resigning a year sooner.
Standing up, Leonard told Mr Grolimund that he would “totally” not approach any observer for the situation and would “not address anybody for the situation, bar my specialist”.
Mr Equity Eagar said that Ms O’Keeffe had experienced an “horrifying” passing and that he had considered the “degree and earnestness” of the charge of homicide while denying bail, in the wake of hearing proof from Det Sgt O’Shea and Mr Leonard.
The late Ms O’Keeffe lived in Dromahane, close to Mallow, in Co Stopper and filled in as a cook. She is made due by her three children.
A posthumous was completed on her body at Stopper College Emergency clinic on February 5.
The consequences of the after death, which was completed by Aide State Pathologist Margaret Reinforce, were not delivered.
The caution was raised on February 4 when a bystander recognized a vehicle ablaze close to the Coillte woodland in Doneraile.
