Two held over man's apartment death

Gardai are questioning two people over the death of a man in Scotch Quay and are appealing for more information

Two people are being questioned over the suspicious death of a man in a city apartment.

The body of the 60-year-old was discovered at a property in Scotch Marsh House, in the Scotch Quay area of Waterford, at around 10.45pm on Monday.

The body remains at the scene, which has been preserved for a forensic examination.

It is understood the victim had suffered head injuries.

A post-mortem examination will be carried out later on Tuesday to determine the exact cause of death.

A Garda spokesman said two suspects - a man in his late 40s and a woman in her late 30s - were arrested and are being detained at Waterford Garda Station under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act.

Both can be held for up to 24 hours. Gardai have appealed for information.
