THE man accused of murdering a teenager in Ipswich was today remanded in custody until next year when he appeared at the town's Crown Court.

Paul Anthony Dwyer, of no fixed abode, will reappear at Norwich Crown Court for a pleas and directions hearing in January.

Dwyer is charged with the murder of Peter Brown whose body was discovered in a block of flats in Henley Road, Ipswich, after he was found with stab wounds.
