Bracas is also charged with attempted murder of the child, intending to destroy property or endanger life, and the theft of a bank card belonging to Ms. Nazarova.

A 25-year-old man was detained and kept in custody after appearing at Lisburn Magistrates' Court, accused of the killing of a woman in Portadown.

Kornelijus Bracas of Church Street, Portadown was brought before the court on a video link and charged with the murder of Alesia Nazarova who succumbed to a fire at her house in Church Street on Tuesday.





Ms Nazarova's daughter, aged 12, was immediately taken to the hospital for medical attention. Thankfully, she has now been discharged and is on the path to recovery.

Bracas is facing charges of attempted murder, wilfully damaging property to endanger life and the theft of a bank card belonging to Ms Nazarova.

A PSNI inspector linked him to the alleged offences.

The court rejected an application to grant bail and consequently, Bracas had to remain in custody. He was seen wearing a grey jumper and his left arm was in a sling at the time. He will appear again through videolink on April 21 at Craigavon Courthouse.
