Joe O’Reilly is accused of killing the mother-of-two at their north Co Dublin home two years ago.

During the extensive two-year-old investigation, detectives identified a suspect’s car and questioned every owner in Ireland of the same model of car, a Fiat Marea saloon.

Mr O’Reilly, of Lambay View, Beldaragh, The Naul, north Co Dublin, will appear at Cloverhill District Court, west Dublin, later today.
