Four are charged over Comber murder

Three men have been charged with the murder of Philip Strickland, who was shot dead near Comber last week.

Mr Strickland (36) was found dead in a car on Quarry Road, off the Ballydrain Road, on January 11. The three men - aged 54, 26 and 24 - are due to appear in court in Newtownards today. A 44-year-old man appeared yesterday before Ards Magistrates Court charged with assisting offenders over the killing.

North Lucas, of Ballycreely Road, Comber, was released on bail of £750 and ordered to surrender his passport and to stay away from any witnesses or co-accused in the case. Two other men arrested over the murder, aged 19 and 32, have been released pending reports to the Public Prosecution Service. 00
