Homeless man’s uncle to be tried for murder
The uncle of a man stabbed to death in Belfast has been ordered to stand trial for his murder.
Samuel Morrison (47) is charged with the killing of George Morrison last July.
The 29-year-old victim, a homeless man, was found lying on an avenue off the Cliftonville Road in the north of the city. He had suffered a number of stab wounds.
During a preliminary inquiry at Belfast Magistrates Court on Thursday prosecutors submitted there was a prima facie case against Samuel Morrison.
The judge returned him for Crown Court trial on a date to be fixed. Morrison, from north Belfast was released on continuing bail to stay at his current address, the Must Hostel in Cookstown.
