A man is due in court today charged with the murder of Ian Ogle in east Belfast.

Last night detectives from Serious Crime Branch investigating the killing said that they had charged a 40-year-old man with murder.

The suspect is due to appear at Belfast Magistrates' Court later today.

He is also being reported to the Public Prosecution Service (PPS) for attempted intimidation. Earlier yesterday, police said a 40-year-old man previously arrested in relation to the murder of Mr Ogle on January 27 had been reported to the PPS for withholding information.

The Community worker (45) died after he was stabbed on a street near his home in Cluan Place.

He passed away after being beaten and stabbed 11 times by up to five men shortly after praying with a pastor.

Two men - Glenn Rainey (32), from McArthur Court in Belfast, and Jonathan Brown (33), also from McArthur Court in Belfast - have already appeared before Belfast Magistrates' Court and been charged with Mr Ogle's murder.

A 21-year-old man also previously arrested in relation to the killing was reported to the PPS for withholding information at the end of last month.

Police have linked the murder to a long-running feud between the victim's family and others in the area.
