THE Irishman arrested in connection to the murder of Gary Hutch has been granted bail. 

Dubliner Ian Dixon, in his mid-20s, appeared in Fuengirola court today over the murder of Hutch, in September 2015.

He was granted bail alongside an unidentified Roman woman also arrested in connection to the investigation.

As part of his bail conditions, Dixon has to sign in to the court twice a month but was not required to hand over any money.

Dixon – a trainer at MGM Marbella – was detained during a major operation into the Kinahan clan by the Guardia Civil on Wednesday.

It was thought that he would be kept in custody like fellow Kinahan associate James Quinn, who was arrested in September.

The murder of Hutch – the nephew of Irish crimelord Gerry ‘the Monk’ Hutch – sparked an ongoing war between the Costa del Sol-based Kinahan and Hutch clans.

Sources close to the case confirmed that Dixon was arrested in Estepona on Wednesday as part of a new operation into the Kinahans.
