A woman has been charged with murdering a man before hacking off his penis and his eyelids and leaving them on the mantle piece.
The victim, named locally as Limbani Mzoma, who also went by the name Robert, was found in a pool of his own blood at a house on a leafy estate in the Irish capital on Saturday.
He was found with his penis and eyelids removed inside a house on Dublin’s quiet Foxrock housing estate Tudor Lawns.
Grace Miano, 50, who lives at the address where he was victim found, was today charged with his murder.
She smiled and waved at reporters outside a special sitting of Dublin District Court this morning, reports The Sun.
A source told Dublin Live: ‘The scene is in a house where a number of non nationals have been living.
‘There has been a lot of trouble at the property and gardai were called there on Thursday afternoon.’
‘They dealt with a public order incident and left when they were called back at 11.30pm they discovered the dead man dead.
‘The severed penis was found on top of the fireplace and they also chopped off his eye lids.’
Police have arrested a woman in her forties after launching a murder probe.
A woman has been charged with the murder of a man at a house in south Co Dublin.
Grace Miano, aged 50, of Tudor Lawns in Foxrock, was brought before a special sitting of Dublin District court on Sunday morning.
She was charged with the murder of 27-year-old Limbani Mzoma at the same address on Thursday night.
Miano, who was originally from Kenya, was arrested on Friday after the body of Malawian national Mr Mzoma was found with multiple stab wounds at the house at around 11.30pm on Thursday.
Sergeant Colm O’Giollain from Cabinteely Garda Station told the court Miano made no reply after she was charged and cautioned at 9.35pm on Saturday night at the station.
The court heard Miano had complained of pains in her head and legs since being taken into custody and that she had been seen by a doctor at the station “on several occasions”.
She requested a medical and psychiatric assessment.
Judge Grainne Malone directed that the accused should receive medical attention and that her solicitor, Jonathan Dunphy should liaise with authorities to have a psychiatric assessment carried out if required.
Miano, who is receiving social welfare, was granted legal aid.
She was remanded in custody to appear before Dun Laoghaire District Court on Friday morning.
A post-mortem examination on the body has been completed. It is thought that Mr Mzoma sustained a violent attack and that some of his body parts were removed.

She was in the house when they arrived – she and two men were questioned by officers.
But she was the only one who was arrested and was held in Dun Laoighaire Garda Station where she was detained and questioned.

The estate where the horror happened is a leafy estate of expensive mock tudor houses – there is a large, well kept green area, and a private parking attendant.
It is near the Leapordstown Racecourse and is a well known affluent area – senior gardai including Assistant Commissioner Pat Leahy attended the scene.
Tudor Lawn residents were in deep shock yesterday and were too afraid to give their names when they spoke to Dublin Live.
One elderly woman, living a few doors from the scene, said that there had been a lot of trouble at the house.
Garda released a statement yesterday and appealed for witnesses.
A spokesman said: ‘Gardaí investigating the circumstances of the discovery of the body of a man in a house at Tudor Lawns, Foxrock have made an arrest.
‘A woman (40s) has been arrested in relation to this investigation and is currently detained at Dun Laoghaire under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984.’
