The funeral of a murdered Greenisland pensioner has taken place today.

Retired plumber Mr Girvan was found last Monday night when police officers making routine enquiries called at his house on Station Road, Co Antrim.

The 67-year-old father-of-two was found with his hands bound behind his back and had been stabbed.

A 29-year-old woman appeared in Belfast Magistrate's Court last week charged with his murder.
