Gardaí hold three in connection with Tipperary stabbing

Three people remain in Garda custody in connection with a murder inquiry in Co. Tipperary.

Horse dealer William Stokes, aged 48, was stabbed to death in front of his young son as he sat in his van in Tipperary town last Friday.

It is believed that the father-of-four could have been the innocent victim of an escalating Traveller feud in the Waterford area.

One person was released from custody overnight.
