A second man was sentenced to life imprisonment yesterday for the murder of investigative journalist Veronica Guerin who had exposed Dublin's drug-dealing underworld. She was shot dead in her car in June 1996 as she waited at traffic lights.
Drug dealer Brian Meehan, 36, was found guilty of the murder of the Sunday Independent crime correspondent by the special criminal court in Dublin.
Meehan was the driver of the motorbike carrying her killer.
He was also found guilty of 14 offences relating to drugs and firearms.
Paul Ward was jailed for life last year for the same attack, but the search for the rest of the gang continues.
