Miller Pacheco (29), who is also a Brazilian citizen, was charged with the murder of his ex-partner before a special session of the Cork District Court.

Pacheco is charged with the murder of Ms. Fonseca at 5 Liberty Street in the early hours of New Year’s Day in violation of common law.

The defendant has an address at Room 3, No 5 Liberty Street in Cork.

Judge John King was given evidence of arrest, reprimand and charge by Det Garda Padraig Harrington.

The defendant had been detained for questioning under section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984 on 1 January and taken to Bridewell Garda Police Station for questioning.

Pacheco was indicted at 14:45 at Bridewell Garda station.


Det Garda Harrington said that in response to the single charge, Pacheco did not respond.

The defendant appeared in court wearing dark trousers and a black sweater.

He did not speak during the brief hearing.

Judge King granted free legal assistance at the request of defense attorney Aoife Buttimer and ordered that Pacheco receive all required medical attention while he was in custody.

He also certified that a Portuguese translator be made available for future court hearings.

Because the charge in question is murder, the bond cannot be tried by the district court.

Any application for bail must be filed with the High Court.

Sergeant Pat Lyons requested the defendant’s remand in custody to appear before a session of the Cork District Court by video link.

Judge King ordered Pachecho to appear again in Cork District Court on 9 January.

Ms. Fonseca, who was from Formiga in Brazil, traveled to Ireland last year for work.

She was employed by BidVest-Noonan Contractor Cleaners.

Her work included duties at Mercy University Hospital (MUH), which is located less than 100 meters from where her body was found at 6:30 am on New Year’s Day.

Gardaí and paramedics rushed to the Liberty Street flat at 6:30 on New Year’s Day, but desperate efforts to revive the young woman failed and she was pronounced dead at the scene.

On Sunday afternoon, Dr Margaret Bolster, Assistant State Pathologist, conducted a post mortem examination at Cork University Hospital (CUH).

Gardaí have withheld the post mortem findings for operational reasons.

However, she confirmed that Mrs. Fonseca met a violent death.

The young woman had been beaten and strangled.

Ms. Fonseca attended college in her native Brazil and had worked as a librarian.

She moved to Ireland last year.

Her body was found on Liberty Street just a couple of hours after she was out with friends to celebrate New Year’s Eve in Cork city centre.

The flat in question is located just 100 meters from Bridewell Garda Station and around the corner from Cork Courthouse on Washington Street.

Ms. Fonseca’s body was found on a bed in a room upstairs on the floor above Picasso’s hair salon.

Gardaí have appointed a family liaison officer to help her family in Brazil.

Her family is understood to be hoping to travel to Ireland to oversee arrangements for the repatriation of her daughter’s remains to Brazil.

In a tribute, both MUH and Bidvest Noonan praised Ms. Fonseca as a diligent worker and said they were “saddened and shocked” by her death.

“Although she only worked for a short time for the company at the hospital, she was regarded as a diligent and hard worker and a valued colleague. We extend our deepest condolences to her friends in Cork and to her family and friends in Brazil. May she rest in peace.”
