A 24-year-old woman has appeared in court charged in connection with the murder of a man in Dublin in 2009.

Siobhan Whittaker, with an address at Maida Vale in London, has been charged with impeding the apprehension of another person believed to have been involved in the murder of Maurice Martin.

The 21-year-old died after being stabbed at a house in Valeview Drive, Finglas on 12 June 2009

Detective Sergeant Tom Lynch told the court that when charged Ms Whittaker shook her head but made no comment.

Judge David McHugh granted her free legal aid. He refused bail and remanded her in custody to appear in court again next week.
