Three Men Charged In Connection With Murder Of Loyalist Paramilitary

Three men arrested in connection with the investigation into the murder of a prominent loyalist paramilitary have been charged with perverting the course of justice.

Ulster Defence Association member John Boreland, 46, was gunned down in north Belfast last month.

A 29-year-old man detained in north Ayrshire and two others, aged 33 and 61, arrested in north Belfast are due to appear at Belfast Magistrates' Court on Thursday.

Boreland was hit a number of times with a shotgun as he walked to his flat in the Sunningdale Gardens area of north Belfast on August 7. He died at the scene.

A fourth man, aged 33, who was arrested in Newtownabbey, north Belfast, on Tuesday has been released pending a review by prosecutors, the Police Service of Northern Ireland said.
