A 51-year-old man was arrested on Wednesday afternoon.

Police said a 57-year-old woman was also arrested on Tuesday evening and is still being questioned at Letterkenny Garda (police) station.

The case was initially treated as a sudden death but the investigation was upgraded to a murder inquiry after a post mortem examination.
