Detective Chief Inspector Eamon Corrigan told the press, “Post mortem examinations will be carried out in due course and at this stage we are working to establish the circumstances surrounding the incident. Although our enquiries are at an early stage, we are threating the death of the woman as murder.
"The injuries to a man, aged in his 30s, who was also in the house at the time of the incident and who suffered stab wounds to his abdomen, is being treated as attempted murder. He is currently in hospital in a stable condition.
