Killer of Waterford horse breeder to mount appeal today

The 20-year-old man jailed for life for the murder of horse-breeder Richard Forristal at his home in Waterford is to challenge his conviction at the Court of Criminal Appeal today.

Anthony Barnes, of Ballybeg in Waterford city, was convicted earlier this year of stabbing the 68-year-old to death after breaking into his home at Carrigavantry Stud in July 2005.

A second man, Andrew Halligan, of Ardmore Park in Waterford, was jailed for seven years for trespass with intent to commit burglary on the same date.

He is also mounting an appeal against his sentence later today.
