Gardaí have released without charge a 40-year-old man held in relation to the murders of a mother and her daughter in Co Kerry earlier this month.
Gardaí had arrested the man on suspicion of withholding information regarding the murders.
He was released without charge shortly before midnight and a file is being prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.
Gardaí believed the Lithuanian national may have information that may assist them in their investigation into the murders of Jolanta Lubiene (27) and her daughter Enrika (8) at their home at Langford Downs in Killorglin on June 15th.
Sources said gardaí were keeping an open mind on the killings and had not narrowed their focus to any one suspect as they investigate people Ms Lubiene may have met through a dating website.
The organisers of a fundraising drive for the family have expressed confidence they will raise money to pay for the repatriation of the bodies to Lithuania.
