One of the leaders of a gang whose members are suspected of killing Irish teen Keane Mulready-Woods is reportedly in custody in Spain after a brutal attack on his girlfriend.
Keane, 17, was abducted in the Ballsgrove area of Drogheda, Co Louth, and taken to a house where he was tortured, killed and dismembered in part of an ongoing drug gang feud last month.
Parts of his body were found inside a black sports bag thrown from a car on Moatview Drive in Darndale, an estate in north Dublin.
Keane's severed head was then found in a blazing Volvo hatchback in Drumcondra, Dublin.
One gang leader panicked after the killing and fled to Spain along with an associate, the Irish Daily Star reports.

One of their partners joined them late last week, but he got drunk and launched a sustained attack on her, it is claimed.
A source said: “It was really bad. Her jaw was broken and he rammed the stiletto down her throat. The injuries were so severe that she is still in hospital.”
Spanish police arrested the man at his accommodation after the woman was rushed to hospital.
He was still in custody last night and is under investigation for domestic violence offences.

Spain has hard-line anti-domestic laws — which see anyone attack their spouse or partner face tougher sentences than people convicted of other assaults.
Daily Star Online has approached Irish police for comment.
Keane’s funeral was held at the Church of the Holy Family in his native Drogheda.
It was carried out by Father Phil Gaffney, who has been supporting the teen’s family.
Pictures showed a hearse carrying Keane's coffin with crowds following and others showed the coffin being carried out of the church.

Some mourners even turned up on motorbikes with helmets on.
Father Gaffney pleaded with the slain teen's young friends to learn from his "naive" mistakes before getting involved with dangerous criminals.
Keane’s torso was never recovered, and Irish cops reportedly believe it may be in the hands of a Dublin criminal.
However, he will not report its delivery because it would only bring unwanted Garda attention to his property and could result in searches, it is claimed.
