A High Court challenge to a Public Prosecution Service decision not to charge killer dentist Colin Howell with the alleged sexual assault of his former partner Hazel Stewart has been lodged.

The pre-action protocol letter lodged with the High Court in Belfast on Thursday states that the PPS did not follow its own code for prosecution when it declined to charge Howell with drugging and allegedly raping the former Sunday school teacher.
