Conan Anderson death: Man charged with manslaughter

A 27-year-old man has been charged with manslaughter in connection with the death of Conan Anderson in Belfast.

Mr Anderson, aged 22  from the Short Strand, died in hospital after suffering a head injury during an night out in the city.

The man is due to appear at Belfast Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday.

Investigators established that an incident had occurred in the early hours of Monday February 6 in the Arthur Lane area of Belfast.

The football coach managed to make it back to his Short Strand home but died in hospital, almost a fortnight after the assault, on Saturday.

Detective Chief Inspector Peter Montgomery said: "Conan tragically passed away on Saturday afternoon after being admitted to hospital with serious head injuries on the evening of Monday 6th February."
