Karen Walsh to challenge DNA and forensic evidence

Karen Walsh, 45, who was convicted of the murder of Maire Rankin at her home in Newry, is challenging the DNA and forensic evidence presented during her trail.

Maria Rankin, an 81 year old grandmother was found dead at her home on the Dublin Road on Christmas morning in 2008. Walsh, who worked in Dublin at the time, owned a house next door to the pensioner.

Ms Walsh’s lawyers say a pharmacist has passed the first stage in her bid for appeal and according to court papers, her grounds for seeking leave to appeal have been judged to meet the required standard.
