A Craigavon man, accused of murdering Marcell ‘Junior’ Seeley, has been remanded in custody for a further four weeks.

Mark Daniel Ward (24) from Drumellan Gardens is charged with murdering Mr Seeley in Lurgan sometime between October 9 and October 13 this year.

Ward appeared at Craigavon Magistrates Court this morning via videolink.

However the case was adjourned until November 20 or until a bail address becomes available.

The body of the 34-year-old was discovered at a flat in Dingwell Park in Lurgan last Tuesday, with Mr Ward arrested the following day.

It is understood Mr Seeley’s remains had lain undiscovered in the property in the Taghnevan estate for a number of days before a relative found him.

At a previous hearing Ward’s defence solicitor Christopher Logue said his client “strenuously denies” any involvement.
