A man has been charged in Perth, Western Australia, over the stabbing of a young Irish man last weekend.

Kenny Meyler (21) from Wexford remains in a critical condition in Perth’s Sir Charles Gairdner hospital after suffering a stab wound to the neck on Sunday.

Vincent Martin Crowe (32), Atwell, Perth, made a brief appearance in the magistrates court, charged with intent to do grievous bodily harm. He was remanded to appear in court again later this month.

Mr Meyler’s mother and two other relatives arrived in Perth yesterday.
