Patrick Keating, aged 49, formerly of Moyne House, Grattan Square, Waterford, denies the murder.
The prosecution alleges he stamped on Mr O'Brien's head and back, and hit him with a dumbbell after they were part of a group of people, including two women, drinking at the apartment.
Sgt Gavin Hegarty told the Central Criminal Court, sitting in Waterford, yesterday that 18 questionnaires were filled out by residents in the days after the death.
A man living in nearby Congreve House said he heard "a woman screaming, one scream" at 10pm or 10.30pm that night.
Another person who was in the same apartment said he "heard a woman shout" at 9.50pm.
The trial continues.
