A woman charged with killing her housemate in Limerick has been remanded in custody.
34-year-old Monika Matracka from The Pines, Briarfield, Castletroy will be back in court again next month after her appearance earlier today.
The 34-year-old Polish national was due to appear via video link at the district court, but she appeared in person due to the need for an interpreter.
Monika Matracka is accused of killing her housemate, 38-year-old Michal Rejmer, at the house they shared in Castletroy on an unknown date between December 30 and 31 last.
Sergeant Donal Cronin said investigations are ongoing and directions from the Director of Public Prosecutions have not yet been received.
Solicitor Tom Kiely indicated his client was consenting to a four-week adjournment.
Judge Mary Larkin remanded the accused in custody until February 9 and ordered a Polish interpreter to be present on that date.
No mention of an application for High Court bail was made in court.
