Gardai this morning continue to question a man arrested yesterday in connection with the Ashling Murphy murder investigation.
The 23-year-old Tullamore teacher was buried yesterday amidst heartbreaking scenes.
Just hours later a man in his early 30s was arrested in Dublin and taken to Tullamore Garda station.
He is now in custody under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984 which allows for him to be held and questioned for up to 24 hours.
The man who was arrested in connection with the murder was being treated for injuries in a Dublin hospital.
A statement from Garda Headquarters confirmed detectives investigating Ms Murphy’s killing had arrested of a man “on suspicion of murder”. However, Gardaí said they had “no further comment at this time”.
Gardaí had been monitoring the man after he presented himself at a Dublin hospital with unexplained injuries, some of which were believed to be self-inflicted.
Garda sources have said they have a “huge amount” of evidence to put to the man.
