A Kenyan expat has been charged with the murder of a man at a house in south Dublin last week.

50-year-old Grace Miano of Tudor Lawns, Foxrock, was brought before a special sitting of Dublin district court on Sunday where she was charged with the murder of 27-year-old Limbani Mzoma at the same address on last Thursday night (1 November).

She  was arrested on Friday after the body of Mr Mzoma, from Malawi, was found with stab wounds at 11.30pm.

Sergeant Colm O’Giollain, of Cabinteely garda station, told the court that Ms Miano chose not to reply when she was charged and cautioned on Saturday night, but had complained of pains in her head and legs since being taken into custody and had been seen by a doctor “on several occasions”.

Judge Gráinne Malone directed that she should receive medical attention, that her solicitor, Jonathan Dunphy, should liaise with the authorities to have a psychiatric assessment carried out if required and that any application for bail should be made to the High Court.

Ms Miano was remanded in custody and is scheduled to appear before Dún Laoghaire district court today (Friday 9 November). The judge said that any application for bail should be made to the High Court.
