Sergeant Colm O’Giollain from Cabinteely Garda Station told the court Miano made no reply after she was charged and cautioned at 9.35pm on Saturday night at the station.

The court heard Miano had complained of pains in her head and legs since being taken into custody and that she had been seen by a doctor at the station “on several occasions”.

She requested a medical and psychiatric assessment.

Judge Grainne Malone directed that the accused should receive medical attention and that her solicitor, Jonathan Dunphy should liaise with authorities to have a psychiatric assessment carried out if required.

Miano, who is receiving social welfare, was granted legal aid.

She was remanded in custody to appear before Dun Laoghaire District Court on Friday morning.

A post-mortem examination on the body has been completed. It is thought that Mr Mzoma sustained a violent attack and that some of his body parts were removed.- Press Association
