John Titiloye, 26, who replied “not guilty” when charged with the murder of Ademola Giwa, faced his second hearing when he appeared at Cloverhill District Court.

He was further held in custody to appear again on Sept. 2 next for directions from the Director of Public Prosecutions. A book of evidence has yet to be completed.

Mr Giwa, who was aged 25 was stabbed in the neck during a row at around 7.15pm on Aug. 10 in the Mac Uilliam Road area. Gardai responded to reports before he was rushed to nearby Tallaght Hospital, but he was pronounced declared dead a short time later.

A man in his 50s was also injured after he tried to intervene in the fight. He suffered slash injuries to his face.

Unemployed John Titiloye, of Mac Uilliam Crescent, Tallaght, was arrested in Dundalk, Co. Louth the following day and charged.

The District Court does not have the jurisdiction to consider bail in murder cases, an application must be made in the High Court.
