‘I didn’t mean for him to die’ – Philip Doyle’s wife charged with producing chef’s knife
“I didn’t mean for him to die.”
Those are the words Sarah Doyle, the wife of Philip Doyle, said to Gardai after she was charged with the “production of an article capable of inflicting serious injury namely a chef’s knife.”
Mrs Doyle was last night charged with an offence contrary to Section 11 of the Firearms and Offensive Weapons Act, 1990, after her husband Philip died following a violent incident at a house in Ramsgate Village in Gorey at the weekend.
The 31-year-old appeared before Gorey District Court with her family and her solicitor where she was granted bail.
As part of her bail conditions, Judge Gerard Furlong agreed hat her passport would be surrendered within the next 24 hours, that she lodge €500 in cash and agree to sign at Bray Garda Station between 9 am and 9 pm twice weekly.
Mrs Doyle said she would adhere to a curfew from 11 pm to 8 am and she would remain at an address in Bray.
Judge Furlong added that she was subject to good behaviour and that a Garda could call to the address at any time and that she would have to present herself.
