A 17 year old boy has appeared before the Children’s Court charged with the murder of a man in Dublin.
The body of 23 year old Adam Muldoon was found in Butler Park in Tallaght on Saturday morning.
He had cerebral palsy and was an occasional rough sleeper.
The 17 year old accused, who was accompanied in court by his grandparents, can’t be named as he is a minor.
The court heard there are deep concerns over his psychiatric well-being and the Judge ordered that an psychiatric assessment be carried out.
He has been remanded in detention and he will appear in court on Friday.
