Murder charge in assault case

A 19-YEAR-OLD man has had charges of assault upgraded to murder after the death of a young musician earlier this year.

Conor McClelland was previously charged with assault causing serious harm to Gavin O'Connor (22) on June 4 last.

Mr O'Connor was found with severe injuries on a country road in Monaghan.

Yesterday, Mr McClelland, of Cullentrabane, Laragh, Castleblayney, was before Carrickmacross District Court to face the new charge. He was further remanded in custody to September 28.
