Evidence concerning whether Lismore man Nicholas Paul Howland allegedly murdered his neighbour, or he had a heart attack and died in September last year, has been delayed.

Police allege 61 year-old Howland killed his 55-year-old neighbour David Anthony Marriott, at 5pm, on September 2, following an altercation outside a unit block on College St, East Lismore.

Paramedics treated Mr Marriott at the scene, before he was taken to Lismore Base Hospital where he died a short time later.

Mr Howland’s solicitor Hugh Van-Dugteren told the court at his last appearance they will be arguing Mr Marriott died of a heart attack.

The court has previously heard a cardiologist’s report was requested after an issue arose out of an autopsy report on Mr Marriott, received in December.

On Tuesday at Lismore Local Court, Mr Howland, who remains free on conditional bail, appeared and was represented by his solicitor.

Mr Van-Dugteren told the court the cardiologist’s report was still outstanding but he expected to receive it in the coming weeks.

He then requested Magistrate David Heilpern vary Mr Howland’s bail so he has to report weekly, instead of daily, to Lismore police.

Mr Heilpern granted the request to vary Mr Howland’s bail and adjourned the case until May 2, at Lismore Local Court.
