A TEENAGE boy has appeared in court charged with the murder of a woman in Dublin in January of this year.
The 15-year-old boy, who has not been named due to his age, was arrested earlier this year after Urantsetseg Tserendorj, 48, died in hospital from stab wounds after a vicious attack as she walked home from work in the city centre.
According to RTÉ News, the teenage boy appeared in the District Court today, where he was remanded in custody to appear at the Children's Court next week; the trial will be heard at the Central Criminal Court.
He was charged with the murder at around 10.30am this morning and has also been charged with three other offences which allegedly took place on the same day as the murder, including threatening to kill or cause serious harm to a man in a shop, and producing a knife while attempting to commit a robbery at another shop.
The murder victim, Urantsetseg Tserendorj, was a 48-year-old woman originally from Mongolia who was walking home from work on 20 January when she was set upon by an attacker near the IFSC in the city centre.
Her attacker stabbed Ms Tserendorj in the neck, and she was left with serious wounds which she sadly could not overcome; she passed away in hospital two weeks later.
The 48-year-old left behind two children and a husband, as well as a large circle of extended family and friends.
