A MURDER in the heart of Mount Gambier on Saturday night shocked the community and left people mourning the senseless death of 32-year-old Bordertown father Rex Court.

His life support system was turned off on Sunday at an Adelaide hospital.

A 15-year-old boy charged with murder appeared in the Mount Gambier Magistrates Court yesterday and was remanded in custody after Magistrate Teresa Anderson ordered a home detention bail inquiry report.

The boy bowed his head in the dock for part of the hearing while his parents watched on from the court gallery.
