The husband was charged in relation to the murder of his wife in Wilton, Cork.

Deepa worked as an accountant at a fund service company in Cork City and had moved to a rented house in the area only a few months back.

The 40-year-old man will appear before a special session of the Cork City District Court this morning at 10.30 am, according to a Garda spokesperson.

Deepa, 38, was discovered on Friday night in a house on Cardinal Court in Wilton with stab wounds to her neck.

Dr Linda Mulligan, the chief state pathologist, performed a postmortem, but for practical reasons, the results were not made public.

Deepa, who had a son who was five years old, had only recently relocated to Cork.

It is believed that when they discovered the incident, he was out with her companion, who had just dropped him off at home.

Around 10.10 p.m., the alarm was raised, and the Gardai and emergency services arrived on the site. She was discovered by them in a bedroom in the residence, lying in a pool of blood.

The accountant Ms. Dinamani was declared deceased in the two-story terraced house.

At the site, a knife was found by Garda technical experts and transferred for forensic examination.

Gardai are currently looking for a reason behind the occurrence.

A 41-year-old man was detained last night under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act after being arrested on the spot.

According to a Garda source, they were awaiting the results of the post-mortem, but "we have arrested a suspect and are not looking for anybody else in connection with this incident" because they had already arrested a suspect.

The alarm was first raised when the lady failed to pick up her five-year-old son from a friend's house after they had picked him up from summer camp, according to Gardai, who suspect the mother had been dead in the residence for several hours.

The sad events shook the locals of the peaceful cul-de-sac, which is near University Hospital Cork.
