The 52-year-old's name suppression lapsed today.

Fallowfield did not seek continued suppression at his appearance in the High Court in Invercargill this morning.

Reedy's body was found at Explorer Motel on 15 May.

Fallowfield was arrested and charged with murder.

He has been remanded in custody without plea and will reappear next month.
