Gardaí have now launched a murder investigation although no motive has yet been established.

The couple's home now remains sealed off in order for a forensic examination to take place.

Mr Wilk's partner is still being treated in hospital, after the couple were violently assaulted by a gang of three or four men in the early hours of Sunday morning.

The man, in his 30s, sustained critical injuries and was pronounced dead following the incident at about 3am on Sunday morning in Ballincollig, Co Cork.

The BBC reports that the two children, both under six years of age, had witnessed the brutal attack [VIDEO] on their father and mother.

The assailants then left the house.

The men, who were carrying weapons, entered the house and seriously assaulted the man and his partner, whose injuries are not life-threatening. The injured parties were later taken to Cork University Hospital for treatment. They were not injured.

Shortly after the attack, a burnt out vehicle was found abandoned a few miles away from the house in Ballincollig, County Cork, Ireland.

Gardai said the post-mortem examination is now ongoing. That scene is also being preserved for a technical examination.

Gardai are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information to contact them at Gurranabraher on 021 4946200, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any Garda station.
