The boys denies murdering the woman, but accepts the charge of manslaughter.

The husband of a woman who died nine days after being stabbed on her way home from work in Dublin has given evidence at the trial of a boy accused of her murder.

The boy, who can’t be named because he’s only 16-years-old, accepts a charge of manslaughter, but denies murdering her on January 29th 2021.

Through a translator, Ulambayer Surenkhor told the court that he and his wife, Urantsetseg Tserendorj, were working as cleaners in January 2021.

She used to work 5-9pm, Monday to Friday in an office in Dublin city.

At about 9.30pm on the night in question, Mr Surenkhor said he received a call from his wife, who was also known as Urna.

The jury heard she was in a bit of distress and he rushed out in his slippers to meet her.

A taxi driver said they approached his car in the rank outside Connolly station near the IFSC.

He said  that when he met her she she was holding her neck.

An ambulance later took her to hospital where she was pronounced dead nine days later.

This morning, a pathologist said she died from a lack of blood and oxygen to the brain, caused by a cut to an artery just below her right ear.

The boy, who was 14 years old at the time, has pleaded guilty to her manslaughter but denies the murder charge.
