Gardaí have made “significant progress” in their investigation into the murder of Mikolaj Wilk in County Cork five years ago.
The 35-year-old Polish man was murdered at a house in Maglin Bridge by men wielding machetes in the early hours of June 20th, 2018.
Several masked men entered the house and attacked the father of two in front of his wife Elzbieta, who was also injured in the attack.
At the Cork Coroner’s Court today, Sergeant Fergus Twomey was granted an adjournment into the inquest of Mr Wilk’s murder.
He said a "comprehensive investigation file" is expected to be submitted to the Director of Public Prosecutions in the near future.
To date, six people have been arrested and released without charge in connection with the murder investigation.
These people were arrested on suspicion of facilitating an organised crime gang that Gardaí suspected was behind the murder.
