Man(51) arrested with murder of his wife Anna Mooney in Raheny

After being accused by Gardaí of killing his wife in her Dublin home, a man has been arrested.

Anna Mooney, a 46-year-old mother of two, was stabbed to death in the early hours of Thursday in her home on Kilbarrack Road in Raheny.

When the paramedics came, the garda was informed.

Shortly after being discovered in the kitchen, Ms Mooney was pronounced dead.

On Friday morning, Stephen Mooney (51), of Kilbarrack Road, Raheny, was charged with killing Anna Mooney and appeared before Judge Bryan Smyth at Dublin District Court.

The defendant was given a copy of the charge sheet after responding, "No comment," according to Detective Sergeant Basil Grimes, who testified in court.

The accused was remanded in custody by Judge Smyth until June 20th at Cloverhill via video connection.

Phelim O'Neill, the defence attorney, claimed that he had just requested legal aid. He stated that he was worried about the accused's blood pressure while he was being held, and he requested that the court recommend that he receive the proper medical care.

The judge granted this request.

A declaration of his client's financial situation was provided by Mr O'Neill for the legal aid application, which was approved.

In a murder case where a High Court application is necessary, the District Court is not authorised to hear a bail application.
