A MAN has been stabbed to death after answering his front door to an attacker, gardai have said.

The 27-year-old victim was set upon at his house in Hollyville Heights, Wexford, shortly after midnight.

A garda spokesman said he suffered several stab wounds in the attack and was taken to Wexford General Hospital.

The man died as a result of his injuries some time later.

The house has been sealed off for forensic examinations and the Garda Technical Bureau and staff from the state pathologist's office have been called in.

Detectives appealed for anyone with information to contact officers in Wexford.

Gardai believe the row between the two men spilled out on to the street from the doorway of the home. A spokesman confirmed several crime scenes have been identified.
