Detectives have arrested two women on suspicion of murder following the death of an elderly man in Londonderry.

Daniel Guyler, 75, was found with serious injuries in the Termon Street area two years ago and died in hospital on May 1 last year.

PSNI Detective Inspector Ray Phelan said: “Following extensive police investigations, detectives have today, Wednesday July 22, arrested two women aged 33 and 44 on suspicion of murder.

“They have been taken to Musgrave PSNI Serious Crime Suite for questioning.”

Detectives from the force’s Major Investigation Team have launched a murder investigation.

Mr Phelan added: “I realise this incident occurred some time ago, however I would ask people to cast their minds back to Monday July 23, 2018.

“Did you see anyone or anything unusual in the Termon Street area of Derry/Londonderry?

“Mr Guyler was found injured at approximately 8.45pm, were you in the area before or after he was found?”

He appealed for anyone with information to contact his detectives.
