Northern Ireland veteran trial: Army veteran does not accept he fired any shots

The Daily Express says Dennis Hutchings, 80, pleaded not guilty to the attempted murder of John Pat Cunningham in Northern Ireland in 1974 and to attempted grievous bodily harm with intent. Mr Cunningham, 27, was shot dead as he ran away from an Army patrol near Benburb, Co Tyrone. He was said to have had the mental age of a child and a deep fear of soldiers. The non-jury trial in Belfast Crown Court heard that a year earlier, troops saw him in bushes “acting suspiciously”. A local doctor explained Mr Cunningham was his patient and had learning difficulties and he was let go.
