A court has been told post-mortem examinations are yet to be carried out on the bodies of four people, one of whom was a baby, who died in a house fire in Derrylin, Co Fermanagh last month.
27-year-old Daniel Allen, with an address at Molly Road in Derrylin, appeared by video link at Enniskillen Magistrates court, charged with four counts of murder and one of arson.
The court heard the case was at a very early stage and there were ongoing issues about identification of the four victims. He will appear again by video link on 23 April.
The four bodies were found after a house on Molly Road in Derrylin was destroyed in a fire at the end of February.
They are believed to be three generations of one family.
They have been named by their landlord as Crystal Gosset, who was in her forties, her teenage children Edward and Diane, and Diane's daughter, Morgana, thought to have been around two years old.
