Police investigating the murder of restaurateur Nelson Cheung in County Antrim have charged a man with perverting the course of justice.

The 24-year-old was also charged with possessing class B drugs. He is due to appear at Antrim Magistrates Court next month.

He was bailed pending further enquiries in relation to a number of other offences.

Mr Cheung, 65, was attacked and stabbed near Randalstown, on 8 January.

He was attacked after his car was forced off the road. His wife, Winnie, 57, was injured in the attack on Caddy Road.

Earlier this year, two teenage girls arrested in connection with the murder were released on bail.

Three men have been charged with his murder. They deny the charge.
