DAVE MAHON is appealing the seven-year prison sentence he received for killing his stepson Dean Fitzpatrick. 

The 45-year-old Irishman was found guilty of manslaughter in June after stabbing the 23-year-old brother of missing expat Amy Fitzpatrick outside his Dublin home.

The former Costa del Sol businessman admitted holding the knife that killed Dean but claimed it was an accident, and even suggested Dean wanted to walk onto the blade.

Mahon was granted legal aid in the Irish Court of Appeal to contest the severity of his sentence.

He and his partner Audrey Fitzpatrick moved to the Costa del Sol with her children, Dean and Amy, in 2004.

Amy went missing on New Year’s day 2008 as she walked home from a friend’s house.
