A 37-year-old man has appeared in court charged with the murder of a mother-of-seven whose body was found in Lough Neagh.

Alan Norman Foster confirmed his name and that he understood the single charge of murder he faces during a brief hearing this morning.

Foster, with an address in Hillside in Antrim, appeared in the dock of Coleraine Magistrates Court in handcuffs, flanked by security staff.

He is accused of killing Antrim woman Pauline Carmichael.

The 61-year-old went missing from her home in the town on Monday night.

Her body was recovered from Lough Neagh on Wednesday afternoon.

A senior police officer today told the court she believed she could connect Foster to the charge.
