Donegal men remanded in custody on murder charge

January 9, 2019

Two young Donegal men have been remanded in custody after appearing in a Sydney court charged with murder.

Twenty-four-year-old Christopher McLaughlin and 21-year-old Nathan Kelly appeared via video-link in relation to the death of a 66-year-old man in Australia.

The pair, who are both from Glengad and Malin, had previously been charged with grievous bodily harm following an incident in the Summer Hill area of the city on December 29.

However, police upgraded the charge to murder after the man died in hospital on Monday.

News of their arrests and detention has caused shock on the Inishowen Peninsula.
