Crowbar link to Markets feud attack - court hears

A crowbar may have been used to stab a man through the neck in a feud in Belfast, a court has heard.

Joe Henry is still fighting for his life after the attack in the Markets area on 2 July.

James McCormick, 42, with an address at Friday Bridge, Berkley Street, Birmingham, was in court in Belfast on Friday charged with his attempted murder.

He was refused bail and remanded in custody.

Opposing bail, a detective said police believe the attack on 2 July was part of an ongoing feud.

He told the court two men are believed to have come to the door of the house, stabbed the man through the neck with a jemmy bar and beaten him about the body.

Mr McCormick was remanded in custody to appear again next month via video-link.
