50 year old Jeffrey Jackson was stabbed to death on Thursday.

According to the Irish Times: A 38-year-old man appeared before Naas District Court yesterday, charged with the murder of a man in Kilcock on Thursday.

Ryan Kearney, of Loughnamona Drive, Leixlip, is accused of murdering Jeffrey Jackson (50) at The Lamps, School Street on February 8th.

Detective Sgt Ger Moore told a special sitting of the court that when he charged the defendant, he replied: “I stabbed Jeffrey but I did not murder him. He was my friend.”

The detective told the court Mr Jackson died violently at around 4pm in an apartment and it is alleged that a knife was used.

He told Judge Desmond Zaidan that the defendant and the deceased are not related.

Mr Kearney made no comment during the brief appearance.

Judge Desmond Zaidan remanded the accused in custody to Cloverhill Prison in Dublin, to appear before Naas District Court again next Wednesday 14 February.
