The trial of Brian Kearney for the murder of his wife, Siobhan, has been adjourned until Wednesday morning.

The body of 38-year-old Siobhan Kearney was found in an upstairs bedroom of the couple's home in Knocknashee, Goatstown, on 28 February 2006.

Mr Justice Barry White told the jury of seven men and five women that he was adjourning the case so an edited book of evidence could be presented to the defence counsel.

The jury was sworn in earlier today at the Central Criminal Court.

He told the jury that he had been dealing with a legal issue this morning which involved the book of evidence.

He said that the prosecution had agreed that a lot of evidence in the current book may be inadmissible.

Justice White said it was an issue for him to determine what evidence is admissible or not.

It is expected that the edited book of evidence will be presented to the defence before Wednesday morning.

The trial is due to get under way at 11am on Wednesday. It could last for up to five weeks.

50-year-old Brian Kearney is pleading not guilty to murder.
