Man (28) in court charged with murder of Fermanagh woman Pauline Kilkenny
A man has appeared in court charged with the murder of Fermanagh woman Pauline Kilkenny.
The 59-year-old was found dead on Tuesday at her home between Belcoo and Garrison.
Concerns had been raised when she failed to turn up for work on Monday.
Police said Ms Kilkenny's sister found her at the house on the Cornacully Road.
Today Joseph Dolan (28), of no fixed address, appeared before Dungannon Magistrates' Court.
He had been charged with the murder of Ms Kilkenny on Thursday.
He was brought into the dock wearing a grey round-neck jumper and light-coloured trousers. He stood and then sat with his head bowed throughout proceedings.
A man in the public gallery wept and was comforted by others during the short hearing before District Judge John Meehan.
A detective sergeant told the court he believes he can connect the accused with the charge.
No application for bail was made.
Dolan was remanded in custody.
He is set to appear before Enniskillen Court on December 10.
In a statement issued earlier this week, Ms Kilkenny's family said they were coming "to terms with the devastating loss of our beautiful, vibrant daughter, sister, aunt and friend".
"Our time will be spent remembering Pauline for the incredible personality she was and feeling so grateful to have lived her life with her," they said.
A 26-year-old woman also arrested by police in connection with the incident was released unconditionally on Thursday.
