Man is due in court over murder

A 21-year-old man is to appear at Swinford District Court in Co Mayo this morning on a charge of murdering mother-of-four Noreen Kelly Eadon.

It emerged last night that the victim was stabbed more than a dozen times in the head. Gardai have not yet recovered the murder weapon.

They are treating the murder as a domestic incident and believe the killer was known to the 46-year-old victim.

Officers said last night that she had suffered a horrific death and had been stabbed in several parts of the head and neck.

Six hours after gardai found her body in the bedroom of her home in Derrycrieve, Islandeady, near Castlebar, Co Mayo, they arrested the suspect at another house in the area.
