The Newry-based Kevin Bell Repatriation Trust (KBRT) is coordinating the return of the body of a young Donegal woman murder in India last week.

Colin Bell of KBRT said the remains of 28-year-old Danielle McLaughlin from Buncrana are expected to be returned to Ireland early this week.  Ms McLaughlin was raped and murdered on Monday last in southern Goa.  Her body was found in a field close to a popular tourist beach.

A 24-year-old Indian man has been charged with her murder.
