A 40-YEAR-OLD man charged with the murder of Andrew Guerrine whose body was found on a country lane-way in south Dublin over two years ago has been further remanded in custody.

Stephen Tynan had nothing to say after he was charged last week with the murder of 37-year-old Andrew Guerrine. He was remanded in custody and appeared at Cloverhill District Court on Thursday.

Mr Tynan with an address at Knockmore Park in Tallaght, is charged with the murder of Andrew Guerrine, at an unknown place between Knockmore and Killinarden estates in Tallaght on May 23, 2015.

The prosecution sought a four-week adjournment because the book of evidence has yet to be prepared.

Defence solicitor Paula Egan said there was consent to the application.

Judge Kathryn Hutton further remanded Mr Tynan in custody until Aug. 31 next. He will appear via video-link  at his next hearing unless the book of evidence is ready to be served in which case he will have to be brought to court.

The accused made no reply when charged with the offence, Detective Inspector Colum O'Malley had said in evidence during the accused’s first hearing on July 27 last.
