Man appears in court over Co Tipperary death

A man has appeared in court charged in relation to the death of a man who was found unresponsive in a house early on 27 December.

Maciej Nowak, 32, was renting a house with others outside the village of Kilross in west Co Tipperary and a birthday celebration was held there on St Stephen’s night.

An incident took place and Mr Nowak suffered a serious injury.

Gardaí, including members of the armed response unit, found him in an unresponsive condition in a downstairs room of the house. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

A technical examination of the area was conducted by gardaí over the course of the following two days.

A post-mortem examination was carried out on Mr Nowak’s body on Thursday.

Gardaí arrested a man in his 20s on Thursday and he was held for questioning under section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act.

This evening 27-year-old Tomasz Rozpeda, of no fixed abode but originally from Poland, was brought before a special sitting of Nenagh District Court.

He is charged with assaulting Mr Nowak, causing him harm.

Detective Garda Kevin O’Keeffe told the court that he arrested the accused at 11.48pm last night and charged him. There was no reply to the charge.

The state applied for a remand in custody and said the gardaí would be objecting to bail.

Solicitor for the accused, Vincent McCormack, said he wouldn’t be applying for bail on this occasion but there may be an application at the next court appearance.

He applied for legal aid and handed in a statement of means on his client’s behalf and Judge Elizabeth MacGrath granted legal aid.

The judge remanded the accused in custody, to appear in person before Tipperary District Court, sitting in Nenagh, next Wednesday 3 January.
