There are "still ongoing enquiries" with police in the Republic in relation to an infant's murder in Co Armagh, a court heard yesterday.

During a brief mention of the case against Sharyar Ali (31) at Armagh Magistrates Court, sitting in Craigavon, a prosecuting lawyer revealed there "are still ongoing enquiries with gardai" regarding the murder of Hunter McGleenon. She told District Judge Eamon King she hoped to have an update for the court in four weeks.

Ali, a Pakistani national with an address at Westenra Terrace in Monaghan, is in custody accused of the boy's murder last November 26.

Previous courts have heard claims that Ali "crossed the border a number of times" while he was caring for the 11-month-old boy.

There have been claims the baby died as a result of a "non-accidental" head injury.

Ali has claimed the infant fell off a sofa and struck his head on the floor.

The case was relisted for May 5.
