A Kenyan woman was last week arrested by police in Dublin, Ireland for reportedly stabbing to death a Malawian man.

Ms Grace Miano, 50, was on Sunday charged with the murder of Limbani Mzoma, 27, after his body was found with several stab wounds in an apartment at South Co, Dublin.

According to Dublin Live, autopsy report revealed that some of the victim’s body parts including his private parts and eyelids were hacked off during the violent attack.

The mutilated body was discovered at a rented house in Tudor Lawns on Thursday.

However, while she lived i n the high-end rented house, the court heard, Ms Miano survived off social welfare. The nature of the relationship between the suspect and the victim is not known.

SMILED AT CAMERAS

Ms Miano made no comment when she was charged at Dublin District Court but smiled and waved at television cameramen as she arrived in court.

The defendant, who wore a blonde wig in court, slumped forward in her seat before the hearing started and at one stage was seen praying.

Defence lawyer Jonathan Dunphy told Judge Grainne Malone that his client, who has been living in Ireland for a number of years, wanted a psychiatric assessment carried out.

He said Ms Miano was also requesting medical attention, as she had complained of pains in her head and leg while in custody.

However, Justice Mailone, who heard the case on Sunday, declined to grant Ms Miano’s request, saying she lacked authority.

Instead, the judge said the decision on Ms Miano’s re quest lay with prison officials.

She was remanded in custody and is set to appear before Dún Laoghaire District Court on Friday.
