A 38-year-old man has been charged with the murder of Anne Shortall in the Republic of Ireland.

Ms Shortall's body was found in a shed in Killoughter, near Ashford in County Wicklow, on Tuesday by police investigating her disappearance.

The 47-year-old mother was last seen alive in Wicklow town on Good Friday.

In court, Det Sgt Fergus O'Brien gave evidence of arrest, charge and caution.

Mr Webster made no reply when cautioned, the court was told.

The judge remanded him in custody to Cloverhill Prison in Dublin. He is due to appear in court again on 16 April.
