THE murder trial of Amy Fitzpatrick’s stepfather David Mahon has heard he didn’t have a good relationship with his stepson Dean Fitzpatrick.
Mahon denies stabbing Dean Fitzpatrick to death in Mahon’s Dublin flat in 2013.
Amy went missing from Riviera del Sol, near Calahonda on New Years Day 2008.
The jury heard that the 45-year-old Mahon ‘panicked’ after the 2013 incident, when Mahon claims Dean Fitzpatrick ran onto the knife.
Jurors heard that Mahon claimed Dean Fitzpatrick pulled a knife on him first and started waving it at him.
Mahon later threw the knife out of a car window while driving around north Dublin.
He told Irish police that Dean Fitzpatrick used to self-harm in Spain and perhaps wanted to run onto the knife.
The court has now heard all of the prosecution’s evidence.
