A POLISH man charged with the murder of his 37-year-old partner in Dublin earlier this month, has been further remanded in custody.

Gardai went to Mary Ryan's residence at Sherrard Street, Dublin 1 on Saturday May 19, after receiving reports regarding injuries she had sustained.



Mary, who was originally from Drogheda, Co. Louth, was found unconscious at the foot of the stairs and was brought to the Mater Hospital where she died.



Waldemar Solowiow (44) was arrested in Dublin city on May 20 in connection with the investigation and was detained at Mountjoy Garda Station under Section 4 Criminal Justice Act 1984.



He was later charged with the murder of Ms Ryan at his home which he had shared with her and he was remanded in custody.



Today, Mr Solowiow with an address at a flat at 3 Sherrard St, was brought before Cloverhill District Court for his second court appearance during which he was wearing a check shirt.



Detective Garda Ian Brunton asked Judge David McHugh for a four-week remand.



Defence solicitor Melanie Higgins said there was consent and Judge McHugh remanded Mr Solowiow in custody to appear before the same court again on June 26.



Det Gda Brunton previously told Dublin District Court that Mr Solowiow was charged at 11.59 pm last Monday (may 21) after which he replied “nothing”.



At his first court appearance last week, a judge had ­recommended that he was to receive appropriate medical attention after hearing that Mr Solowiow could have physical and possibly psychological problems.
