A security expert has spoken of the 'vile' drug linked to the alleged murder of a champion Irish dancer in the UK.

On May 18, a 25-year-old man and his teenage girlfriend were due to stand trial accused of murdering Kilkenny man Adrian Murphy (43) and poisoning another man.

Joel Osei and Diana Cristea (18) were charged with murder after Mr Murphy was found dead in his apartment in Battersea, south-west London, on June 4 last year.
