Police investigating the murder of a Chinese restaurant owner in County Antrim have been granted more time by a judge to question five people.

Nelson Cheung, 65, died and his wife, Winnie, 57, was injured after their car was forced off the road near Randalstown last Wednesday.

The couple, from the Ballymena area, were attacked and had money stolen. Mr Cheung died from stab wounds.

A 14-year-old boy and a 16-year-old girl are among those still in custody.

Det Ch Insp Eamon Corrigan said: "We have been granted extra time to question two females, aged 16 and 32, and three males, aged 14, 32 and 33."

A 25-year-old man also remains in custody.
