An engineering student charged with the manslaughter of 11-year-old Robert Holohan in Midleton, Co Cork last January, has been remanded in custody for a week.

However, Judge Michael Patwell has warned that if the State seeks a further extension, he will want to hear the reasons for the delay from an official in the Office for the Director of Public Prosecutions, or from the garda in charge of the investigation.

20-year-old Wayne O'Donoghue will be back in court again next week.

Robert's body was discovered near Inch Strand in east Cork eight days after he disappeared.

A post mortem examination showed that he died of asphyxiation.
