A 28-year-old Lithuanian man has been found guilty of murdering Jolanta Lubiene and her daughter Enrika in Killorglin, Co Kerry.

Aurimas Andruska was unanimously convicted after a five-week trial at the Central Criminal Court in Tralee.

The forestry worker had been charged with the murder of Ms Lubiene and Enrika at their home in Killorglin in June 2013.

Andruska, who had also been living in Killorglin, had denied both counts.

The jury of seven women and five men had been told Ms Lubiene and her daughter were victims of a sustained and violent attack.

A print from the little finger on Andruska's left hand was found in Ms Lubiene's blood at the murder scene.

His DNA was found on Enrika's top, and the soles of the shoes he was wearing earlier the day they died matched bloody footprints found in the home of the victims.

The jury deliberated for two hours and 45 minutes before returning unanimous verdicts.

Mr Justice Patrick Mc Carthy imposed concurrent life sentences on Andruska.

A victim impact statement was read to the court on behalf of Ms Lubiene’s sister Kristina and her husband Marius.

The family rejected a picture of Ms Lubiene which emerged during the trial, during which it was revealed that she had posted her details on adult websites.

Kristina Kuleviciene described Ms Lubiene as a loving sister, daughter and mother.
