Two face murder charges

Two men have appeared in court charged with the murder of Christchurch man Bradley Lomax.

The body of the 24-year-old was found beside the Eyre Stream, north of the city last Monday.

Kasha William Gosset, 35, from Oxford, and a second man who has interim name suppression, made a brief appearance in Christchurch District Court this morning.

They did not enter a plea to the charges and were remanded in custody until 29 September.

Several people at court on behalf of Mr Lomax were escorted out of the courtroom by police after a row erupted.
