A 21-year-old man has been charged with assault causing harm to his father.

John Butler, who was aged 48, was found with serious injuries at a house on Brown Street in Portlaw, Co Waterford, and later passed away in hospital.

Stephen Butler - with an address provided at Ramsgrange, New Ross, Co Wexford - was arrested at the scene in the early hours of Saturday and was charged this morning with assault causing harm.

He appeared at Carrick-on-Suir District Court this afternoon, where Garda Sharon Ryan of Tramore Garda Station gave evidence of arrest, charge and caution.

Mr Butler made no reply when charged with the offence.

Solicitor for the accused, Ken Cunningham, told the court that an application for bail would be made at the next sitting of the court later this week.

However, the court heard there will be an objection to this from gardaí.

Garda Ryan said Mr Butler is a flight risk due to the seriousness of the charge and the likelihood of a more serious charge being brought against him.

Judge Terrence Finn remanded Stephen Butler in custody to Limerick prison until the next sitting on Thursday 16th of January.
