A 38-year-old man arrested over the murder of a father of four in north Belfast has been released unconditionally.

He was arrested on Monday over the murder of Kevin Kearney.

Police said the man was also questioned over dissident republican threats made to a number of people in an Ardoyne social club last October.

Mr Kearney, who was 46 and from north Belfast, died on 7 October 2013 after he was shot.

His body was found in a lake at Alexandra Park, off the Antrim Road, a day later.
