A man charged with the murder of a father-of-one in Tallaght, Dublin has been further remanded in custody.

Keith Connerton, 39, with an address at Deerpark Avenue in Tallaght, is accused of the murder of Graham McKeever, 32, and faced his third hearing on Friday when he appeared before Judge Victor Blake at Cloverhill District Court.

He was further remanded in custody to appear again at the same court on October 26 next.

He has not yet indicated how he will plead and a book of evidence has yet to be completed by the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Mr McKeever, originally from Clondalkin, was discovered unconscious and with stab wounds to his body outside an apartment block at Deerpark Avenue in Tallaght in the early hours of the morning of February 18 last. He was pronounced dead at the scene following efforts to revive him.

Mr Connerton had been charged on following September 11 following his arrest at his home and was remanded in custody following a district court hearing later that day. Gda Kieran Kilcoyne had said the accused made no reply to the charge.

Mr Connerton, who is unemployed, has been granted legal aid.
