Pair to stand trial charged with murder of ‘vulnerable’ Owen Creaney

Owen Creaney

A man and woman are expected to go on trial in September charged with the murder of Owen Creaney.

Mr Creaney’s body was found in a wheelie bin in Craigavon in July 2014.

The County Armagh man had been described by police at the time as “vulnerable”.

Two people, 29-year-old Stephen Hughes, from Craigavon, and co-accused Shauneen Boyle, 25, of Edenderry Park, have been charged with the murder.

Both are denying the charges.

The Banbridge woman entered a ‘not guilty’ plea at Belfast Crown Court today (Friday).

Mr Creaney had only celebrated his 40th birthday on June 28, the week before he died.

He was found dumped in a wheelie bin after he had been violently assaulted.

The pair will go on trial in September, and the case reviewed prior to that, in June.
