Police get more time to quiz pair over death
Police have been given extra time to question two men in connection with the murder of 48-year-old Anthony McErlain in Ballycastle.
Yesterday police said a court had granted detectives an extra 24 hours to hold a 33-year-old man and a 50-year-old man arrested on Friday.
Police had already been given extra time to question the 33-year-old suspect on Saturday.
The body of Mr McErlain was discovered after police were called to a house in the Broombeg View area at around 8.30pm on Thursday. Police believe a disturbance may have taken place at the house in the hours leading up to his death.
The senior investigating officer said Mr McErlain "suffered a traumatic and frightening death".
His sister Rosemary Morton said last week that his problems with alcohol overtook him, but he did not deserve to die the way he did.
