Police have charged a man with murder after an incident in Lismore late last year.

About 6.30pm on Sunday 21 December 2014, police responded to reports of an injured man in Uralba Street.

The 56-year-old man was airlifted to Brisbane’s Princess Alexandra Hospital with a fractured skull, right arm and left shoulder, as well as a stab wound to his back.

A 27-year-old man was arrested at the scene and taken to Lismore Police Station, where he was charged with attempted murder and causing grievous bodily harm with intent.

He was refused bail, and remains in custody.

About 7.40pm on 2 January 2015, the 56-year-old man died in hospital.

Following further inquiries by detectives from Richmond Local Area Command, the younger man was today (Tuesday 27 January 2015) charged with murder.

The man is due to reappear in Lismore Local Court on 17 February 2015.
