A 44-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of withholding information from police regarding the murder of Pat Ward in Co Tyrone.

Mr Ward was found dead in an alleyway at McCrea Park in Clogher last Saturday.

A man and a woman appeared in court charged with the 30-year-old's murder and were remanded into custody yesterday.

No application for bail was made by Niall Cox, 23, and Karen McDonald, 33, both of McCrea Park. Both will appear via video link on March 13.

They understood the charge at Dungannon Magistrates' Court on Wednesday morning where there was a heavy police presence.

Over 50 family and friends of the murdered father-of-four attended the hearing.

The suspect arrested today will also be questioned under the Communications Act after CCTV footage and images of the deceased were shared online.
