Woman who faked murder victim’s suicide sent back to prison

Janice Brady (30), who was serving a suspended sentence for staging a murder victim’s suicide, has been sent back to prison.

Ms Brady was sent back to prison after being charged with over 30 new offences, consuming crack and heroin, as well as failing to give notice of where she was living.

The mother-of-one was sentenced to four years in prison back in 2019 for staging a suicide so that her brother ‘Keith Brady’ could avoid the prosecution for the murder of 60-year-old Martin Kivlehan, who was a well-known musician in the Sligo area.

Ms Brady served 28 months in custody after her brother was found guilty, this resulted in a court ruling that she would not have to serve the remainder of her jail term on the basis that she stayed with her father in Ballyshannon, Co Donegal.

Without informing her probation officer, Ms Brady moved to Dublin where she had been charged with 32 offences, predominantly shoplifting, since March.

Ms Brady stated that she felt smothered by the system and just wanted to be left alone.

Mr Justice White directed that she would be sent back to prison to serve the remainder of her sentence.
