A WOMAN IS due to appear in court in Dublin this afternoon charged in relation to the murder of a man in Louth on New Year’s Day.

Wayne McQuillan, 30, was fatally stabbed in the early hours of the morning in Rathmullen Park in Drogheda on 1 January. He was brought to Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital where he was pronounced dead a short time later.

The case was upgraded to a murder investigation following the results of a post mortem carried out at the hospital yesterday.

The 40-year-old woman was arrested shortly after the stabbing. She will appear before the Criminal Courts of Justice in Dublin at 4.30pm this afternoon.
