The Kerry farmer, Michael Ferris, who was accused of murdering his neighbour with a teleporter has been found not guilty.

The trial of Kerry dairy farmer, Michael Ferris of Rattoo, has been ongoing for the past two weeks at Tralee courthouse, with the farmer accused of murdering his neighbour with a teleporter last year, as originally reported by us here.

The farmer had pleaded not guilty to the charges of the murder of fellow farmer John Anthony O’Mahony in April 2017. The courts heard the details of how Mr. Ferris drove the prongs of his teleporter through the car driven by 73-year-old Mr. O’Mahony, causing fatal injuries in the process.

“Mahony’s gone. I struck the car with the teleporter”. Ferris is alleged to have told a neighbour following the incident in 2017.

Mr. Ferris appeared in court again today, October 19th, to hear the verdict of the trial and he was found not guilty of murder. 63-year-old Ferris did, however, receive a guilty verdict for the manslaughter of the elderly farmer, Mr. O’Mahony in the dispute over crop bangers.
