Deliberations on the charge of capital murder made against Mr Brady will resume on Tuesday morning, when the jury of seven women and five men return.

Mr Brady (29) of New Road, Crossmaglen had pleaded not guilty to both charges of involvement in the robbery of €7,000 at the Credit Union in Bellurgan and the shooting dead of Det Gda Donohoe on January 25 2013, seven and-a-half years ago.

Mr Justice Michael White has told the jury he will accept a majority verdict in relation to the capital murder charge if at least 10 of the 12-person jury panel agree.
