Notorious rapist Larry Murphy, who is the chief suspect for the murder of Deirdre Jacob, has been working on building sites in London and Birmingham as the Director of Public Prosecutions decides whether to charge him in relation to the case.

"Gardaí are aware of where Murphy is living in the London area and are aware that he has been working as a carpenter on building sites," a senior source told the Irish Independent.

In late February officers submitted a file to the DPP on the murder of trainee school teacher Deirdre Jacob, but a decision to charge Murphy has not yet been made.
