The man accused of the murder of Odhrán Kelly in Lurgan last week has appeared in court today.
Odhrán’s body was discovered beside a burning car in the Maple Court area in the early hours of Sunday morning, December 3.
Detectives from the PSNI’s Major Investigation Team, investigating the murder of the healthcare worker, officially charged 31-year-old Scullion with murder late on Thursday night.
In court this morning, a police Detective Sergeant said he could connect the accused to the charge before the court.
The charge was then read and the defendant was asked if he understood – he replied: “yeah”.
As there was to be no application for bail, the judge remanded Scullion into custody and adjourned the case for four weeks to be heard again on January 5.
They are charged with assisting an offender with “the disposal of the body of Odhrán Kelly”.
Bail was not requested for either defendant and as a result both were remanded in custody.
The court heard they will apply for bail later this month. They are due back in Craigavon courthouse on December 15.
