A woman has appeared in court in Dublin charged with the murder of a man in his 20s.

Fifty-year-old Grace Miano, who lives in Foxrock, Dublin, appeared at a special sitting before Dublin District Court on Sunday morning.

Ms Miano is accused of killing Limbani Mzoma whose body was discovered on Thursday.

It is understood the man received a number of knife wounds that amounted to a mutilation.

The body was discovered at a rented house in Tudor Lawns in Foxrock at about 23.30 local time on Thursday.

Ms Miano made no comment when she was charged and cautioned at Dublin District Court.

The court granted an application from her solicitor that she should undergo a psychiatric assessment.

She was remanded in custody and is set to appear before Dún Laoghaire District Court on Friday.
