The body of Pauline Kilkenny, 59, was found by her sister at a property in the Cornacully Road area of the town at about 1pm on Tuesday.

Concerns had been raised after Ms Kilkenny failed to turn up for work.

Detective Chief Inspector John Caldwell said the contents of the victim’s handbag and her car had been removed from the property.

He said: “A post-mortem examination has yet to take place but I am treating this as murder.”

Mr Caldwell added: “My thoughts go out to the victim’s family, including her sister, who will no doubt have been left traumatised by the discovery of her sister’s body.”

Police said a 28-year old man was remanded in custody on suspicion of murder, suspicion of possession of cannabis and theft of a motor vehicle.

Officers are appealing to anyone who has any information to contact them.
