Officers in Kildare say a woman in her 30s presented herself at the Newbridge garda station in the early hours of December 14 with injuries.

She was later taken to Naas General Hospital where she received treatment for non-life-threatening injuries.

Gardaí then went to a residence in the Newbridge area of Kildare – the same location of the alleged assault – and discovered the body of a man, aged in his 40s.

His body has been removed from the scene and taken to the Mortuary at Naas General Hospital where a post-mortem has been scheduled for tomorrow morning.

Investigations are ongoing and the scene remains preserved this evening.
