Mr Walker was found in Ravenswood Park
A 39-year-old east Belfast man has been remanded in custody charged with murder.

Thomas Giles, an unemployed labourer from Ravenswood Park on the Braniel Estate, has been charged with murdering 41-year-old Marshall Walker.

Mr Walker from Wyncroft Way in Braniel was found with stab wounds at Ravenswood Park on Saturday night.

He was taken to hospital but died a short time later.

A detective constable told Newtownards Magistrates Court on Monday that when charged, the defendant replied: "No".

Remanded

When questioned by the defendant's solicitor, the detective said the defendant had been a friend of the dead man.

He also agreed that a considerable amount of drink had been taken that evening.

He said the defendant had an appointment to see a psychiatrist at the Ulster Hospital in Dundonald on Monday.

Mr Giles was remanded in custody until 7 December.
