A 36-year-old Dublin man is facing trial next January for the manslaughter and false imprisonment of Ciaran Noonan who went missing from East Wall in Dublin over two years ago.
Mark Allen, formerly of Wellview Avenue, Mulhuddart, was arrested at Dublin Airport last night on foot of an extradition warrant after he had arrived on a flight from Amsterdam.
Mr Noonan (29), a father-of-one who had been living in Ashbourne, Co Meath but originally from East Wall, was last seen getting into a car at Russell Avenue, on October 20, 2011.
His naked remains were discovered a fortnight later on November 4, 2011 in a field at Tullaghmeaden, about six miles outside Trim, Co Meath.
Judge Mary Ellen Ring remanded Mr Allen in custody for trial on January 12, 2015 at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court. His pre-trial hearing will take place on November 21, 2014.
Sergeant David Gallagher told Ronan Kennedy BL, prosecuting, that he arrested Mr Allen on Thursday evening at Dublin Airport.
The father-of-one had been extradited from Holland on foot of a European Arrest Warrant.
He is accused of the manslaughter and false imprisonment of Mr Noonan sometime between October 20 and November 4, 2011 at a unknown place.
