A 33-year-old woman has been charged with a number of offences in connection with the murder of James McDonagh in County Antrim.

Mr McDonagh died in the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast after an assault outside the Elk Inn near the village and Toomebridge in the early hours of Sunday, January 10.

The woman faces two counts of perverting the course of justice and a charge of withholding information. She will appear at Magherafelt Magistrates Court later this month.

A 24-year-old man has already been charged with his murder.

Detective Chief Inspector Eamonn Corrigan said: "The woman was arrested and questioned last month and returned to answer her bail today.

"As a result of our enquiries and following consultation with the Public Prosecution Service, she has been charged to appear at Magherafelt Magistrates Court on 17 February."
