Mother, 30, dies three days after being ‘attacked’ at her home while her six-year-old daughter was asleep

The suspect was arrested at Tallaght Hospital on Saturday after apparently crashing his car in Laragh three hours after the alleged attack that morning. He was taken to Bray District Court where he was charged with assault causing harm to Ms Lott. He was brought to court shortly before 3pm on Monday, escorted by a uniformed garda and two detectives. 
 
An officer told the court that Murtagh said “sorry” when told he was to be charged with assaulting Ms Lott. 
 
Ms Lott’s friends went online to mourn her.
 
One friend, Anne Kennedy, said: “Such a heartbreaking thing to happen to a family, just so very sad for little girl and family.’ “
 
Maria Kinsella said: “RIP beautiful Nadine, may you get the softest bed in heaven, thoughts with the Lott family and your little girl.”
 
Irish lawmaker Simon Harris said: “My thoughts are with Nadine and her family and friends this evening. A devastating and tragic loss for them and for the entire community.”
 
Hundreds of people joined a candlelit vigil for Ms Lott in Arklow on Monday night, where a choir group sang hymns and mourners observed a moment’s silence.
