TWO MEN are due to appear in court this morning in relation to the murder of a 17-year-old boy who was killed while in the care of the State.

The men are due to appear at Blanchardstown District Court this morning in connection with the murder of Daniel McAnaspie, who was stabbed to death last year.

Daniel McAnaspie’s body was found in a drain near Duleek in Co Meath on May 13 of last year, three months after he went missing from State care.

An orphan, he had been in the care of the HSE since 2003. He was the first child to be killed while in State care.
