Dressed in a red hoodie, he sat with his head in his hands and was visibly upset throughout the hearing, and was comforted by members of Natalia’s family.

Sergeant Cathal Duffy told the court that the accused made no reply when he was arrested, charged and cautioned at Ballymote Garda Station shortly before 8pm last night.

His barrister asked that he be put on suicide watch while in custody, and the court heard this application was supported by the family of the deceased.

Judge Kevin Kilraine agreed and Mr Karaczyn was granted free legal aid and was remanded in custody to appear before Harristown District Court tomorrow.
