Former league star Craig Field will remain on remand after facing Lismore Local Court yesterday charged with murder.
Field and another man, Shaun Fathers, have been charged over the death of 51-year-old Kelvin Kane in a car park outside the Kingscliff Beach Hotel last month.
Kane was found unconscious in the car park and later died of head injuries.
Police allege that ‘one significant punch’ led to Kane falling to the ground and hitting his head.
They claim that Kane and the two men had been spotted earlier in the night arguing in the bar and that the argument spilled out onto the footpath, where it became violent.
Fathers’s application for bail was accepted but Field’s was refused. Both will face court again in October.
