A man charged with the murder of Elaine O’Hara has been refused bail by the Supreme Court.
Graham Dwyer was charged in October with the murder of Ms O’Hara, aged 36, whose decomposed remains were found in the Dublin mountains in September. He is accused of murdering her in Co Dublin on Aug 22, 2012.
The 41-year-old architect and father of two, originally from Cork but with an address at Kerrymount Close, Foxrock, Dublin, was remanded in custody by a District Court judge earlier this week to appear on Jan 15 by video-link.
The book of evidence is also due to be presented then.
He was refused bail by the High Court last month after the State objected to bail.
Yesterday, in the Supreme Court the three members of the court took just under a half hour to decide to reject his application for bail.
Chief Justice Susan Denham said the court was dismissing all three grounds on which the appeal had been brought. The court had earlier made an order that none of the evidence relating to the bail application could be published.
Dwyer, dressed in a dark suit, shirt and tie, attended the court accompanied by prison officers.
