A 50-year-old man has been rebailed by detectives investigating the death of a man at a homeless hostel.

The dead man, also 50, was found at O’Hanlon House in Luther Street in May and it is understood his death may have been linked to a potentially contaminated batch of heroin.

The suspect was arrested after the death on suspicion of administering a poison with intent to endanger life or inflict grievous bodily harm.

He answered bail yesterday and was told to return to court on Monday, July 14.
