Lukasz Rzeszutko (aged 27), who had been on his way to work at a fish processing plant, was attacked at the Newtown Industrial Estate, in Coolock, north Dublin in the early hours of October 2 last.

He was found on a road at around 5am with serious head injuries and died two days later at Beaumont Hospital.

On January 7 last, Martin Morgan (aged 20) of Tonlegee Road, in Raheny, and Edward Byrne (20), from Coolock, but who had an address at a YMCA hostel in Dublin 8, were charged at the Dublin District Court with Mr Rzeszutko's murder.

Today Mr Morgan was served with a book of evidence and Judge Denis McLoughlin made an order sending him forward for trial at the present sittings of the Central Criminal Court.

Last week co-defendants Edward Byrne and a 17-year-old boy who cannot be named because he is a juvenile were also returned for trial.
