Man accused of Coleraine murder in bid for bail
A window cleaner accused of murdering a Coleraine man is set to apply for bail after becoming a grandfather.
Richard Dalzell is charged with murdering 54-year-old Mark Lamont in Coleraine last year.
Dalzell (36), of Whinpark Road, Newtownards, is currently in custody, and appeared at Coleraine Magistrates Court via video-link yesterday.
A prosecutor said a file in the case has been allocated to a senior prosecutor and is currently under consideration.
She asked for the case to be adjourned for four weeks, but a defence lawyer said he wanted to apply for bail next week as Dalzell's teenage daughter had given birth on Sunday to a baby boy, meaning "the family dynamic is changing somewhat".
The case was adjourned until next week.
Mr Lamont, a father-of-three, died on October 11 following an incident at Ballycastle Road the month before.
