A man in his late 20s is due to appear in court this evening charged in connection with the death of a mum-of-two.

The body of 27-year-old Jasmine McMonagle was found at her home in Killygordon in the early hours of Friday morning.

It is believed the young mum lost her life due to knife wounds following an attack.

Reports claim the mum had contacted the Gardaí before the attack took place. She reported a domestic disturbance at 4.20 am.

Gardaí were refused entry to the home, which she shared with her partner, at 4:47 am.

A man in his late 20s was then arrested at 7.30 am. He was taken to Letterkenny Garda Station and will now appear before the Sligo District Court at 8pm today.

The man shared two children, believed to be aged one and seven, with the deceased. They are currently being cared for by close family.
