He's set to be charged with the murder of David Byrne
Gerry 'The Monk' Hutch is being returned to Ireland this afternoon in relation to the Regency Hotel murder.
It's after he lost his appeal against his extradition from Spain, where he was arrested last month, on foot of a European Arrest Warrant.
He's set to be charged with the murder of David Byrne at the boxing weigh-in in the Dublin Hotel in 2016.
