The uncle of murdered Frenchwoman Sophie Toscan du Plantier has branded Jim Sheridan’s TV documentary series as “disrespectful” but believes renewed publicity surrounding the case will result in justice being served.

The French filmmaker was found beaten to death in her west Cork holiday home 25 years ago. Gardaí identified former journalist Ian Bailey as the chief suspect but he has repeatedly denied any involvement in the murder.
