Man appears in court charged with murder over Longford stabbing

A 24 year old man has appeared in court charged with the murder of a man in Longford on Tuesday.

Rihards Lavickis of 2 Annaly Court, Longford was brought before a sitting of Mullingar District Court this morning.

He was charged with the murder of Akadiusz Czajkowski at Rue Noyal Chatillon, Townspark, Longford on November 1 2016.

Det Sgt Eric Godfrey gave evidence of arrest, charge and caution before Judge Seamus Hughes.

He said Mr Lavickis made no reply when he formally charged him at Longford Garda Station  just before 10pm last night.

Defence solicitor Frank Gearty  made an application for legal aid and asked for his client to be psychiatrically assessed while in custody. 

Judge Hughes granted both requests and remanded Mr Lavickis in custody to appear before a sitting of Cloverhill District Court on November 10.
