Irish Daily Mail - - News -

A CA­VAN man has been con­victed of a €90,000 tiger kid­nap­ping four years ago in which a post­mistress, her daugh­ter and an Ital­ian stu­dent were ab­ducted from their home.

Paschal Kelly, 53, with an ad­dress at Coote­hill, Co. Ca­van, had pleaded not guilty to tres­pass and to the false im­pris­on­ment of post­mistress Su­san Lawlor, her daugh­ter Emma Carter and Ital­ian stu­dent Gabriella Saisa at Se­abury Drive, Malahide, Dublin, on Septem­ber 25, 2014.

Kelly had also pleaded not guilty to rob­bing Ms Lawlor of cash at Bay­side Post Of­fice, Sut­ton, Dublin, and threat­en­ing to kill her, Ms Carter and Ms Saisa.

He also de­nied un­law­ful possession of a ve­hi­cle.

Shortly af­ter mid­day yesterday the jury re­turned unan­i­mous guilty ver­dicts on all charges af­ter one hour and 40 min­utes de­lib­er­at­ing.

Kelly has been re­manded in cus­tody for sen­tence in Jan­uary.
