Three men have been charged with the murder of Philip Strickland, who was shot dead near Comber last week.
Mr Strickland (36) was found dead in a car on Quarry Road, off the Ballydrain Road, on January 11. The three men - aged 54, 26 and 24 - are due to appear in court in Newtownards today. A 44-year-old man appeared yesterday before Ards Magistrates Court charged with assisting offenders over the killing.
North Lucas, of Ballycreely Road, Comber, was released on bail of £750 and ordered to surrender his passport and to stay away from any witnesses or co-accused in the case. Two other men arrested over the murder, aged 19 and 32, have been released pending reports to the Public Prosecution Service. 00
