A 15-year-old boy has been charged with the murder of a mother-of-two in Dublin earlier this year.
Urantsetseg Tserendorj, 48, who was originally from Mongolia, died after she was attacked on her way home from work in Dublin in January.
The boy cannot be named for legal reasons.
President of the District Court Judge Paul Kelly remanded him in custody to appear again at the Children's Court next week.

Ms Tserendorj was on her way home from work as a cleaner on 20 January last when she was attacked and stabbed at around 9.30pm that night near the CHQ building at Custom House Quay.
She remained in a critical condition in the Mater Hospital but died two weeks later.
Detective Sergeant Brendan Casey told the court today that he charged the boy with the murder of Ms Tserendorj at 10.30am this morning in the presence of his sister and when he asked him had he anything to say the boy replied "nothing".
The court was told that the Director of Public Prosecutions had directed trial on indictment and the case would be heard at the Central Criminal Court.
The boy was also charged with three other offences today relating to alleged incidents that occurred on the same day.
He is also accused of threatening to kill or cause serious harm to a man at the Spar shop on Upper O’Connell Street and robbery and producing a knife while attempting to commit robbery on Amiens Street.
