Teenager Matthew Selby has today appeared in court after being charged with murdering a 15-year-old girl at a popular caravan park.
Emergency services descended on Ty Mawr Holiday Park in Towyn, North Wales, on Saturday where police later confirmed the girl had died.
Selby, aged 19, this morning appeared at Llandudno Magistrates after being accused of the murder at a caravan park on July 31.
NorthWalesLive reported how district judge Gwyn Jones remanded Selby, of Windermere Crescent, Ashton-under-Lyne, in custody.
He will next appear at Mold Crown Court on Wednesday.
Prosecutor James Neary asked for the case to be sent to the crown court and said there was no entitlement to bail.
Defence solicitor Simon Sargent said during a hearing which lasted less than two minutes: ”I have nothing to add, save to say this a tragic case.”
Selby, wearing a grey sweatshirt and between two guards in the glass-fronted dock, spoke only to confirm his name, address and date of birth and to confirm that he understood the charge.
North Wales Police have previously urged the public not to speculate over the incident on social media as an investigation continues.
A spokesman at the park said at the weekend: “We are shocked and saddened by this tragic incident.
“Ty Mawr is a 100-acre family park which welcomes tens of thousands of happy holidaymakers every year.”
