An Irishman has been charged with the murder of Wexford man Kenny Meyler in an Australian court today.

Vincent Martin Crowe, with an address in the Perth suburb of Atwell, has been charged with the murder of Kenny Meyler.

Mr Meyler died last February after being stabbed in the neck in Scarborough, a suburb of Perth.

The charge was upgraded to murder after the death of Mr Meyler.

Crowe was remanded him in custody after appearing in court today. His next court date is set for November. 

Mr. Meyler had been working in the construction industry in Australia but he was due to travel to Sweden to work for his father there.

He hoped to eventually return home to Wexford, said friends.
