Man for trial over Nairac killing (BBC News Northern Ireland)
A man who allegedly confessed to reporters about his alleged involvement in the 1977 disappearance of Robert Nairac is to stand trial for murder.
Belfast Crown Court judge Mr Justice Hart ruled that Kevin Crilly, 59, could be sent to trial.
The judge threw out an application by Mr Crilly’s lawyers that he had no case to answer over the SAS man’s murder.
Mr Crilly, from Lower Faughill Road, Jonesborough will formally be arraigned before the Crown Court next week.
He is to be charged with the soldier’s murder along with two counts of false imprisonment and two charges of kidnapping.
Six men have already been jailed in connection with the SAS captain’s disappearance, three of them for murder.
Captain Nairac was on his fourth tour of duty in Northern Ireland at the time of his killing.
