Wayne O'Donoghue remanded in custody

A 20-year-old engineering student charged with the manslaughter of schoolboy Robert Holohan has been remanded in custody for a fortnight.

Wayne O'Donoghue, of Ballyedmond, Midleton, Co Cork, was charged with killing the 11-year-old in Midleton on 4 January last.

The case was the first to be called at Midleton District Court this morning where Inspector Martin Dorney applied for a two-week adjournment.

Robert's body was discovered near Inch Strand in east Cork eight days after he disappeared.

A post mortem examination showed that he died of asphyxiation.

Mr O'Donoghue is being detained at Midlands Prison in Portlaoise. He will appear in court again on 17 February.
