THE stepfather of missing Amy Fitzpatrick touched down at Dublin Airport this afternoon to face charges in relation to the fatal stabbing of her brother Dean.
Dave Mahon, who lives in Spain with Amy's mum Audrey, had been asked by Gardai to return to Ireland as the Director of Public Prosecutions has decided to bring charges against him.
Mr Mahon told independent.ie he is "willing to face" whatever charges may be served against him.
Dean Fitzpatrick (23) was fatally stabbed during a scuffle in an apartment at Burnell Square apartments, at Northern Cross, on the Malahide Road on May 25 last year.
The father-of-one was rushed to Beaumont Hospital but pronounced dead soon after.
He was stabbed in the abdomen.
Mr Mahon has admitted to the killing but said that it was accidental.
He said Dean ran at him while he was holding a knife that he had moments earlier taken from his stepson.
Gardai arrested Mr Mahon but later released him without charge while a file was prepared for the DPP.
