Two men are to stand trial charged with carrying out a murder in north Belfast, a judge ordered.

Louis Maguire (27) and Christopher Power (32) are jointly accused of killing Eamonn Ferguson last year. The 35-year-old was found dead in a house at Ardoyne Place on March 15, 2014.

Maguire, with a previous address on the same street, and Power, of no fixed abode, were at Belfast Magistrates Court for a preliminary enquiry.

No details of how Mr Ferguson died were disclosed. But it was submitted by a prosecution lawyer that both accused have a case to answer.

Based on the papers before him, District Judge George Conner held that a prima facie case had been established against both defendants.

Maguire and Power were remanded back into custody to appear again for future arraignment on a date to be fixed.
