Man appears in court charged with the murder of his wife in Dublin

A 32-year-old man has been remanded in custody with a recommendation for psychiatric treatment after being charged with the murder of his wife at their Dublin apartment.

She suffered multiple severe knife injuries to the head and neck in the fatal assault.

The scene was preserved for a technical examination by the Garda Technical Bureau. A post-mortem examination was then carried out.

Gardaí then arrested the victims husband, 32-year-old Diego Costa Silva on suspicion of murder and brought him to Finglas Garda Station.


He was charged at the station on Saturday morning and held pending his appearance at Dublin District Court this morning.

He will face his next hearing at Cloverhill District Court via video link on Friday.
