Capital murder: the trials of Steven Silver

In June 2020, Garda Colm Horkan was shot and killed while on duty in Castlerea, County Roscommon.

His murder shocked the community and his colleagues in the force.

Steven Silver of Foxford, County Mayo has now been convicted of Garda Horn’s murder, after two trials where jurors had to decide if Silver’s mental health was an excuse for his crime.

To find out what happened in the courtroom, Aideen Finnegan talks to Eoin Reynolds.
