A 16-year-old was remanded in custody and will face a psychiatric evaluation after he was charged with the murder of the man, whose body was discovered on Monday. 

Gardaí were alerted after the discovery of a body at about 1.30 am, in a laneway off Madison Road, at the South Circular Road, in Kilmainham, Dublin 8.

The man, who had suffered serious injuries, was believed to have been in his 40s.

The 16-year-old boy, who cannot be named because he is a juvenile, was arrested and held at Kevin Street Garda Station on Monday. He was later charged. 

He appeared in court on Tuesday.
