Two men have appeared in court charged with the murder of a 42-year-old man in Dublin last month.

Wayne Whelan was shot dead before the car he was in was set on fire at Mount Andrew Rise on 18 November.

He was identified through DNA three days later.

Anthony Casserly, 23, and 50-year-old Christopher Moran, both from Rowlagh Park in Clondalkin, appeared before Blanchardstown District Court.

They were arrested last Thursday and both charged with murder yesterday.

Judge David McHugh remanded Mr Casserly and Mr Moran in custody to appear before Cloverhill District Court on Friday 20 December.

The judge also granted the two men free legal aid.
