Police further allege he is obsessed with the victim and did not come to terms with the end of their relationship.

The 22-year-old was previously charged with arson, stalking, burglary, breaching orders and assaulting police over the incident on New Years Day this year.

He will remain behind bars but continues to maintain his innocence.

The matter will return to court on April 29.
