Glenamaddy resident found guilty of murder after three-week trial

Thu, Mar 30, 2017

A Latvian man has been found guilty of murder after he strangled a fellow Latvian who had filed a complaint against him to the gardai. It was the prosecution’s case that 31-year-old Andresj Krauze murdered Juris Buls (30) after he refused to withdraw his complaint.

Krauze, of Dudley Heights, Glenamaddy, Co Galway, pleaded not guilty at the Central Criminal Court to murdering Mr Buls at an unknown time on July 7 or 8, 2011 in the county of Galway. The victim’s decomposed body was found in a drain two weeks later.

The jury of six men and six women took just under five hours to reach their unanimous guilty verdict after a three-week trial. Justice Margaret Heneghan said she would hand down the mandatory life sentence on April 26 when the victim’s sister will make a statement to the court.
