Four people have been charged with impeding the investigation into the murder of a Rathfarnham grandmother, whose remains were found scattered in the Wicklow Mountains.
Patricia O'Connor's husband, daughter and granddaughter are among those who appeared in court today.
The remains of the 61 year old were found scattered in various locations across a 30 kilometre stretch of the Wicklow Mountains in June 2017.
A 33 year old man has already been charged with her murder and is before the courts.
This morning, four people were arrested as part of the investigation and appeared before Tallaght District Court charged with impeding the investigation.
Patrica’s husband, daughter, granddaughter and her daughters ex partner all appeared in court earlier.
74 year old Augustine O’Connor of Mill Close, Clasheen, Stamullen in Co Meath, 40 year old Louise O’Connor and her 20 year old daughter Stephanie of Lower Gardiner Street in Dublin and Louise’s ex-partner 41 year old Keith Johnson of Avonbeg Gardens in Tallaght have been released on bail with certain conditions.
They are due back in court next month.
