A man has been charged in connection with the murder of Kevin Molloy in Dublin.

Detectives investigating the murder of Molloy this morning arrested a 22-year-old man.

He is due to appear at Dublin District Criminal Court this afternoon. 

The body of 41-year-old Kevin Molloy was discovered at Glendhu Road in Cabra on Sunday, February 1. 

A subsequent post-mortem carried out on the body of the victim by the State Pathologist, Professor Marie Cassidy, discovered signs of foul play and the investigation was subsequently upgraded to murder.

It is understood Mr Molloy had suffered head injuries and lost a large amount of blood during the 'frenzied attack'. It is believed he may have been dead for a number of days before being found. 

The gruesome discovery was made by the dead man's relatives who had become concerned after they had no contact with him in several days.
