Northern Ireland killer Stephen Henry charged with being unlawfully at large

Murderer Stephen Henry is to appear in court on Monday charged with being unlawfully at large.

Henry was arrested on Friday evening in the Waringstown area after he failed to return to prison on Monday sparking a police manhunt for the 41-year-old.

Earlier on Friday he had appeared in a Dublin court but released over a public order offence. The court heard how it would take a week to organise a European Arrest warrant.

Henry, who has also been charged with possession of a Class C drug, will appear at Lisburn Magistrates' Court on Monday. As is usual procedure the charges will be reviewed by the Public Prosecution Service.

He has been serving a 13-year sentence for the murder of John Cooke in 2004.
