A Dublin woman, who was arrested in South Africa as part of a Garda investigation into a double murder in Co. Meath over eight years ago, has said she is willing to be extradited to Ireland.

Ruth Lawrence was detained last week in Bloemfontein on foot on an international arrest warrant.

Today, the 42-year-old was brought before Bloemfontein Magistrates’ Court in Free State Province, where she confirmed she would not fight extradition back to Ireland.

Eoin O’Connor and Anthony Keegan were murdered in April of 2014.

The friends were found wrapped in plastic sheeting and buried in a shallow grave on an island in Lough Sheelin in Co. Meath.

It is believed Ms. Lawrence fled from Ireland to South Africa in 2014 with her then boyfriend Neville van der Westhuizen.

He is also wanted in connection with the double murder but he is still serving a life sentence in South Africa for a separate murder.
