He’s been remanded in custody without plea. 

The accused, flanked by four guards, was dressed in a prison gown and kept his head down throughout the proceedings. 

He’s described as being of no fixed abode on the charge sheet and his lawyer did not seek a formal mental health assessment.

Judge Peter Rollo has granted him interim name suppression until his next appearance in the High Court on June 1.
