25th April 2010, Comments 0 comments

A Briton appeared in court Saturday after an arrest warrant was issued in France in connection with the murder 14 years ago of a French woman in Ireland.

Ian Bailey, a freelance journalist, was bailed ahead of another administrative hearing at Dublin's High Court Wednesday.

He is wanted by authorities in France in connection with the death of Sophie Toscan du Plantier, wife of the late film producer Daniel Toscan du Plantier.

She was found beaten to death on December 23, 1996 outside her holiday home in the village of Schull in County Cork, southwest Ireland.

Toscan du Plantier's remains were exhumed in 2008 from a cemetery in southern France for court-ordered DNA testing.
