Three men have been charged with murder after the the death of an Irish teenager at the weekend.

19 year old Cian English from Carlow fell to his death from an apartment balcony in the country's Gold Coast on Saturday.

The body of the teenager was discovered at the foot of the View Avenue complex at Surfer's Paradise by a passerby at around 3.15am.

Police believe Mr English fell from the fourth floor while trying to escape three men who were attempting to rob him at knifepoint.

Three suspects, aged 18,20 and 22 , were later tracked down, arrested and charged with one count of murder and armed robbery.

Jason Ryan Knowles, 22, Hayden Paul Kratzmann, 20, and Lachlan Paul Soper-Lagas, 18, were not required to appear in court today and have been remanded in custody.

The English family from Carlow, had moved to Australia around five years ago.
