A 41 year old man is due to appear in court later today charged in connection with the murder of a woman whose body was exhumed from a graveyard in County Limerick last year.

The body of Margot Seery (49), who was originally from Rathkeale, was found in an apartment in Dublin in October 1994 with gardai ruling out foul play at the time.

However, the investigation into her death was re-opened last summer after a man walked into a Dublin garda station claiming that he strangled her.

As part of the investigation, which is being led by detectives from the Cold Case Unit in Dublin, Ms Seery’s body was exhumed last September to facilitate a post mortem examination by the deputy State Pathologist, Dr Michael Curtis.

The Garda Press Office has confirmed that a man who was arrested in the Kimmage area of West Dublin this morning has been charged in connection with Ms Seery’s death.
