A man and woman are to be sentenced later this month at Trim Circuit Court for drugs offences linked to the death of model Katy French.

Judge Michael O’Shea set 19 February as the date for evidence and sentencing in the case.

Kieron Ducie ,42, of Lamberstown Manor, Kilmessan, Co Meath and Ann Corcoran ,32, of Tolka Rd, Clonliffe Rd, Dublin 3 admitted in Trim Court in November to having procured cocaine for the purpose of sale or supply to another in December 2007.

Both Ducie and Corcoran were remanded on continuing bail to that date.

Two years ago Russell Memery, who had been living at Yellow Clay Manor, Navan was given a two and half year suspended sentence at Trim Circuit Court after pleading guilty to having conspired to possess cocaine for the purpose of sale or supply to another between 1 December and 2 December 2007.

The court heard that Memery had received €200 when he handed over cocaine to another person at the Statoil Service Station Clonee.

Katy French died in Our Lady's Hospital, Navan a number of days after she had collapsed following a house party in Co Meath

A post mortem concluded that the 24-year-old had died as the result of brain damage and found traces of cocaine in her system.
