Accused murderer refused bail

A COFFS Harbour man has been refused bail over the murder of Port Macquarie father Peter Martyn.

Chad Misiepo, 33, was on parole for other offences when he allegedly stabbed Mr Martyn on New Years Day.

A five day man-hunt ended with his arrest at Toormina on Tuesday.

Police allege Mr Misiepo tried to run from police before he was apprehended on Sawtell Rd.

A crime scene was also established at a home at Boambee East.

Mr Misiepo was formally refused bail in the Bellingen Local Court on Wednesday morning.

He will front court again at a later date.

Speaking to reporters outside the Port Macquarie Police Station on Tuesday night, Detective Inspector Steve Clarke said officers from the Mid North Coast and Coffs/Clarence Commands had worked closely together to track Mr Misiepo and should be congratulated on a "great team effort".
