    The man accused of the murder of Cobh teenager Sheola Keaney has changed his plea to one of guilty.</font>


    Her
    21-year-old former boyfriend Thomas Kennedy, with an address at Russel
    Heights, Cobh, had pleaded not guilty to her murder when the case
    opened last Friday.</font>


    But when
    the case was called before Mr Justice Paul Carney at the Central
    Criminal Court sitting in Cork late this morning, Mr Kennedy's defence
    counsel, Blaise O'Carroll, asked for his client to be rearraigned.</font>

    When asked how he pleaded, Mr Kennedy said 'Guilty'.</font>
    The jury has been discharged and sentencing has been adjourned until 11am tomorrow morning.</font>
