Ms Kilkenny's body was found by her sister at her home on the Cornacully Road between Belcoo and Garrison on Tuesday, where she lived alone in the isolated area.

Her death is said to have caused a sense of disbelief in the community and the nearby Enniskillen shop where she worked.

PSNI Detective Chief Inspector John Caldwell, who is leading the investigation, confirmed that the female suspect is currently in custody assisting with enquiries.

Police also said they are treating Ms Kilkenny's murder as an isolated incident.

"I want to assure the community that their safety remains a top priority for the officers in this district," Superintendent Michael Baird added.
