Teenager admits robbing man who later died after fall
A jobless Romanian, who police believe is part of a crime gang that targets people out socialising in Northern Ireland, has been charged with robbing a man who was found dead shortly afterwards at the bottom of Derry's Walls.
Costica Munteanu (19) has admitted robbing Conall Kerrigan of his wallet on August 23 last year.
Mr Kerrigan's body was found by police behind the Millennium Forum, after he was reported missing by members of his family following a night out in Derry.
Munteanu, from Maplewood Lawn in Tallaght, Dublin, also admitted stealing iPhones, each valued at £600, from two women the day before Mr Kerrigan's body was found.
The investigating officer in the case told District Judge Barney McElholm at the Magistrate's Court in Derry that following the reported disappearance of Mr Kerrigan last August, PSNI officers viewed security camera footage of the city walls.
The recordings showed "the final movements of Mr Kerrigan prior to his death".
She said the footage showed the victim being robbed by two men, both of them Romanian.
The thefts of the two iPhones took place in the same area the previous night, and the same two men were involved in both incidents, the court was told.
"Unfortunately, no local police officers in this area were able to identify the two men. But, after a press release was issued appealing for help, gardai from Dublin contacted the PSNI and said they were able to identify the two men," she said.
