A man charged with the murder of his wife Joanne Lee, whose body was discovered in a house in Dublin last month, has been further remanded in custody.

Keith Lee, 42, was wheeled into Dublin District Court on Sunday morning accused of the murder of his estranged wife Joanne.

Mr Lee, whose address was given as no fixed abode, faced his second hearing when he appeared at Cloverhill District Court on Wednesday. Judge Victor Blake further remanded him in custody to appear again on April 18 next.

At his first hearing on Sunday, an order was made that he was to receive any medical attention he required. Bail in murder cases can only be granted in the High Court.
