Two men have been arrested in connection with the death of Eugenia Bratis, whose body was found in the wooded area of the Phoenix Park.

Ms Bratis, 50, from Timisoara in Romania, died after being repeatedly stabbed in the upper body.

Gardaí have established that she had been travelling back and forth from Romania since 2007 and in recent times had been seen begging on the O'Connell Bridge and O'Connell Street areas.

She was identified through DNA samples following a public appeal in August.
