A man has tragically passed away after a brutal alleged assault in Tweed Heads last week.
New South Wales Police have confirmed to Sea 90.9 that Kevin Carney died at Gold Coast University Hospital on Wednesday afternoon, a week after suffering critical injuries at a home on Kennedy Drive.

The alleged offender has already appeared in court on charges of causing grievous bodily harm and assault occasioning actual bodily harm.
He was due to reappear in court on Monday May 27.
