He said there had been a call to the ambulance service from one of the witnesses and when paramedics arrived the man was dead.
“He sustained significant head injuries and to the upper part of his body as well,” Insp Hopkins said.
He said no weapon had been used.
“We believe he received those injuries in an altercation earlier in the night between 12 and 1.30am,” he said.
“We believe the offender has left the initial address at Kerry Court and has gone to a separate address and evidence has been taken to a third address.”
Insp Hopkins said police were not aware of the reason for the altercation. He said the men all knew each other. The charged man is expected to appear in court on Friday morning.
