On 10 August 2015, it was reported that the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI), is considering seeking the extradition of a man suspected of murdering Jennifer Dornan in her home, from Mountjoy Prison, in the Republic of Ireland. A report is here.
On 2 August 2015, Ms Dornan was stabbed in her home in Belfast, which was subsequently set ablaze. It is believed that the fire was a bid to destroy the evidence of her murder.
On 7 August 2015, a 37-year-old man was detained by gardaí in County Donegal, on an unrelated matter. He is now believed to be the primary suspect in the murder, and is currently being detained in Mountjoy Prison, in Dublin.
Following the arrest, a PSNI spokesman stated: “There are a number of options we will now be considering to progress this investigation and seeking an extradition order is one of these options.”
Another man has been arrested in Belfast, on suspicion of withholding information.
