Three more people have been arrested in connection with the murder more than two years ago of farmer Victor Stewart.
The 45-year-old’s body was discovered at his home on the morning of October 22, 2008 at Creevekeeran Road in Middletown, Armagh.
At the time detectives said they believed the motive for the murder of the dairy farmer was robbery.
A 50-year-old woman and 22-year-old man were arrested yesterday by detectives from the PSNI serious crime branch and remain in custody. A 21-year-old man was later arrested and is being questioned about assisting an offender and withholding information. A 23-year-old man was remanded in custody last month on Christmas Eve charged with Mr Stewart’s murder.
Peter Joseph Moloney, of Drumarg Park, Armagh, is accused of beating Mr Stewart to death at his isolated farmhouse.
He is also accused of stealing a safe from the property.
