Andrew Cash of Highrath, Clara, Co Kilkenny was charged early this morning with murder and also charged with assault causing harm to Ms Cash.

He was brought before Carlow District Court this morning.

Garda Colm McMenamin gave evidence of arrest, charge and caution and said the accused made no reply when charged with murder.

Inspector Barry Smith asked for a remand in custody until next week.

Solicitor Chris Hogan, for the accused, said there can be no application for bail in the District Court. He applied for legal aid, saying his client is not working, and there was no State objection.

Judge Geraldine Carthy granted legal aid and also agreed to Mr Hogan's application that his client be afforded appropriate psychiatric care in custody and also be medically assessed on arrival at prison.

Andrew Cash was remanded in custody to appear before Kilkenny District Court next Tuesday, via video link.
