A prolonged and intense investigation conducted by detectives from Malahide and Coolock garda stations over eight years, involving co-operation with police forces from other jurisdictions resulted in an investigation file being forwarded to the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Directions to charge the man with murder were received late in 2017 and a European arrest warrant was obtained.

Police in London arrested the man on January 9, 2018 and he has been held in custody since then awaiting extradition.

He will appear at the Criminal Courts of Justice tomorrow.
