Two men have been charged in connection with the murder of a man found in a burning car.

Wayne Whelan, 42, was shot in the head before the Toyota car was torched in the Mount Andrew Rise area of Lucan in Dublin last month.

Mr Whelan, who was found in the passenger seat, was identified using DNA analysis.

The accused, who were arrested last Thursday, are due to appear at Blanchardstown District Court later on Tuesday.

A woman who was also arrested on Thursday was released without charge the following day.

A file in relation to her is being prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.
