Murderer Graham Dwyer has reportedly lodged five complaints to the Press Ombudsman in relation to media publications stating his height and age incorrectly.

Dwyer's complaints, believed to be against five different news media publications, are based on 'damage to reputation' by incorrect reporting of his age. He is also unhappy about articles in which he's reported as being just five foot four.

The Sunday World reports that the West Cork architect is 'obsessed' with coverage of him in the media and "keeps a file of articles in his cell".

They report that a source said Dwyer is "very vain... obsessed with the papers getting his height wrong".

Dwyer was convicted of murdering Ms O'Hara on August 22nd, 2012. Her remains were found on September 13th, 2013 and Dwyer was handed down a life sentence on March 23rd, 2015, after being found guilty by a jury.

It was recently revealed that Dwyer planned to challenge his murder conviction on "twelve key grounds".

He exchanged letters with a Anglo-Spanish student au pair from prison in which he claimed "I am still going and I will not rest until I am freed and my name is cleared".

It was reported that he has become a vegetarian and 'fitness fanatic' behind bars and wears his now-long hair in a ponytail.
