Traveller murder widow admits theft

The wife of a Traveller hacked to death in a brutal hatchet killing has admitted going on a shoplifting spree.

But Julia Mongan says she is innocent and only pleaded guilty to two charges of theft to make sure she did not go to jail.

“I pleaded guilty for the sake of my kids. If I had pleaded not guilty and been found guilty I would have been sent to jail,” she said.
