Mur­derer Marta Herda starts her life sen­tence at Dóchas prison

Wicklow People (Arklow) - - FRONT PAGE - ES­THER HAY­DEN

POL­ISH waitress Marta Herda was moved to Lau­rel House in the Dochas Women’s Prison last week.

Herda (29) was con­victed of mur­der­ing Hun­gar­ian Cs­aba Or­sos who drowned af­ter she drove a car at high speed through the crash bar­rier at South Quay, Ark­low on March 26, 2013.

Herda spent her first week­end be­hind bar in the prison’s com­mit­tal unit be­fore be­ing moved to Lau­rel House last Mon­day.

Sources said that af­ter ar­riv­ing in the lodge Herda was greeted by Ire­land’s most in­fa­mous fe­male mur­derer Scissor Sis­ter Char­lotte Mul­hall. A source told the Sun­day World that ‘Char­lotte rules the roost among the in­mates in the Lau­rel Lodge’.

‘She talks to all the new in­mates who go in there and ba­si­cally tells them what’s on and what’s not. If Marta has any sense she’ ll go along with that be­cause Char­lotte has a mean streak when peo­ple don’t play ball.’

It is un­der­stood that Marta Herda and her le­gal team are cur­rently in the process of pre­par­ing an ap­peal against her con­vic­tion for the mur­der of Cs­aba Or­sos.

Cs­aba’s brother, Zoltan San­dor, said they feared Herda would get away with her crime.

‘My mother is very sat­is­fied that Marta Herda was found guilty of Cs­aba’s mur­der, he said. We were wor­ried as a fam­ily that she might be found not guilty, or serve a shorter sen­tence for man­slaugh­ter, but we are happy with the way it turned out.’
