A court has heard a Polish man told gardaí "I'm innocent" when he was charged with the murder of a homeless man in north county Dublin.

The 29-year-old accused was brought before the Dublin District Court on Friday morning following the death of Michael Kurek last year.

Last August, the body of Mr Kurek was found in a laneway just outside Ballyboughal.

The 33-year-old, who was originally from Poland, had been stabbed multiple times.

He had lived in Ireland since 2010 and had been recently become homeless before his death.

This morning a 29-year-old man, also from Poland, was brought before the Dublin District Court charged with Mr Kurek's murder at a unknown location on August 3rd or 4th 2017.

The court heard Sebastian Barczuk of no fixed address replied "I'm innocent" when he was charged and cautioned on Thursday night at Balbriggan garda station.

A Polish interpreter sat with him during the brief court appearance.

As it is a murder charge, bail can only be sought in the High Court.

The accused was remanded in custody to appear in court again next week.
