GERRY ‘The Monk’ Hutch has been found not guilty of the murder of Kinahan gang member David Byrne.
The 60-year-old was accused of killing Byrne in a fatal gun attack which happened during a boxing match weigh-in at the Regency Hotel in February 2016.
Hutch, who was arrested in 2021 after a European arrest warrant was issued, denied murdering the 33-year-old.
He spent more than a year in Dublin’s Wheatfield Prison before his trial began last year.
It lasted 52 days and concluded in January.
This morning the trial verdict was given at Dublin’s non-jury Special Criminal Court, where Hutch was found not guilty.
He will now walk free after being acquitted of Byrne's murder.
