An architect with a sexual desire to stab women has been found guilty of murdering a vulnerable childcare worker in Ireland.

Graham Dwyer, from south Dublin, faces a mandatory life sentence after a harrowing nine-week trial heard how he was filmed knifing sexual partners. 

The married 42-year-old admitted having an affair with mentally ill Elaine O'Hara, whose body was found in mountains near Dublin in September 2013.

Dwyer had lured the 36-year-old there 13 months earlier just hours after she was discharged from a psychiatric hospital.

Among the evidence - which on three occasions was deemed too gruesome for the public to remain in court - were items related to sado-masochism such as masks, ropes and restraints.

As well as being shown graphic videos of Dwyer stabbing various women during sex including Ms O'Hara, the jury was read documents retrieved from his computer that gave details of a woman being raped.

On the face of it Dwyer lived a normal life with his wife and children, working as a successful architect and enjoying flying model planes.

But he cultivated a sick affair with Ms O'Hara, who he met online.

The trial heard of almost 5,000 text messages between a "Master" and "Slave", including 64 on the day she vanished. 

In one text Dwyer, described by the prosecution as "a sadistic and brutal pervert with nothing on his mind other than murder", admitted "blood turns me on".

The final text sent to Ms O'Hara read: "Go down to shore and wait."

During several years of correspondence, Dwyer repeatedly referred to his fantasy of stabbing a woman to death, suggesting potential victims including Ms O'Hara's neighbours, estate agents, and hill walkers or joggers.

At one point the victim had warned "Sir" that such an act would be found out through DNA.

Dwyer had denied killing Ms O'Hara, claiming she had been suicidal.

A jury in Dublin returned a unanimous guilty verdict.
