By Lesley Houston

Three men have been charged with the murder of Chinese restaurant owner Nelson Cheung on January 8.

Mr Cheung (65) was killed last Thursday after robbers forced his car off the road in a remote area of Co Antrim.

It is believed his throat was cut as he was murdered in front of his wife Winnie (57), who suffered knife wounds in the Caddy Road attack.

Police said the men, aged 25, 32 and 33, are expected to be charged with murder, attempted murder, robbery and with attempted robbery. The 25-year-old is also charged with burglary. A woman, aged 32, is charged with perverting the course of justice and with handling stolen goods.

The four accused are scheduled to appear before Ballymena Magistrates Court today.

A 16-year-old girl and a 14-year-old boy also questioned during the course of the investigation have been released pending a report to the PPS.

Mr Cheung ran the Double Value takeaway restaurant in Randalstown.
