A man in his 40s arrested in connection with the fatal stabbing of a mother and daughter in Killorglin, Co Kerry, earlier this month was released without charge last night.

A file will now be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Gardaí began a murder investigation after the bodies of 27-year-old Jolanta Lubiene and her eight-year-old daughter Enrika were found at their home in the town on 16 June.
