Inquest on Killorglin double murder takes place

The sister of a Lithuanian woman and her eight-year-old daughter murdered in Killorglin says she still believes the man who killed them is a monster.

A jury at the inquests into the deaths of 27-year-old Jolanta Lubiene and her daughter Enrika Lubyte returned a verdict of unlawful killing in accordance with the findings of the post-mortem examinations.

The verdict also recorded their deaths on June 16, 2013.

Lithuanian national Aurimas Andruska is serving two concurrent life sentences for the murders on a date between June 15 and 17, 2013.

Jolanta Lubiene and her daughter Enrika were found dead in the home they shared at Langford Downs on June 17, by Jolanta’s friend Ramute Narmute, who raised the alarm.

Ms Narmute told the inquest she became concerned when Jolanta hadn’t returned any of her texts or calls.

When she called to the house on Sunday, June 17, she could see Jolanta’s body lying on the kitchen floor and she could hear the dog barking.

Enrika’s body was later found by gardai upstairs.

A post-mortem examination revealed they had both died from haemorrghage and shock due to multiple stab wounds.

Marius Lubys, the father and husband of the deceased, attended today’s inquest along with his sister-in-law Kristina Kuleviciene.

Afterwards, Ms Kuleviciene said her feelings for Aurimas Andruska had not changed and she still believed he was a monster.

She said the inquest had brought finality to the family’s ordeal.
