YOLANTA Lubiene (27), whose lifeless body was found lying face up in a pool of blood in her Killorgln home, knew the person who brutally murdered her and her eight-year-old daughter, Enrika.

Gardaí have confirmed that there were no signs of forced entry at 9 Langford Downs where Yolanta had lived with daughter Enrika, who was a bubbly and pupular pupil of Scoil Mhuire in Killorglin.

The young mother's blood-soaked body was discovered on the kitchen floor of her semi-detached home. She had been stabbed more than a dozen times in what has been described by sources as a frenzied attack. She had been cooking a family meal when the horrifying attack occurred.

A senior garda has confirmed that, while there were signs of a struggle as the Lithuanian mother desperately defended herself, nothing had been disturbed in the kitchen. No items were stolen from the home either.

It has also been confirmed that eight-year-old Enrika was found in her upstairs bedroom where she had been callously stabbed "a number of times" and left to die.

Neither victim had been wearing nightclothes, adding to speculation that the shocking events occurred in daylight hours.

Questioned on a possible motive, the senior garda stated that there was no definite line of enquiry by Tuesday morning but confirmed that it appeared the 27-year-old mother would have known her attacker.
