The Romanian man accused of murdering his partner in Athboy last Friday has been further remanded in custody.

34-year-old Daniel Blanaru appeared again at Trim District Court via video link today, accused of killing 26-year-old Larisa Serban in Rathmore last Friday.

He was previously before the court on Saturday after being arrested hours after the mother-of-two was fatally assaulted at their home.

Judge Alan Mitchell told the accused that instructions about his case were awaited from the State, before remanding him to appear at the same court by video link on September 13th.
