25 February, 2010 - by Maeve McLaughlin

Sinn Féin Foyle MLA Martina Anderson speaking on behalf of the partner of murder victim Kieran Doherty and his family:

"I have been asked to request that the family of Kieran Doherty be allowed to grieve in private. Kieran's partner Mairead and his family are traumatised and in deep shock at the sudden and brutal death of Kieran. They wish to be left to plan his return and burial in private and in support of each other.

"The family have particularly asked that media do not congregate around the family home and they thank you for respecting their wishes. ENDS
