A 26-year-old man is to appear in court charged with murdering north Belfast man Kyle Neil.

The body of Mr Neil, 23, was discovered in the boot of a car at Windsor Road, off the Lisburn Road, on Sunday.

The man is due to appear at Newtownards Magistrates Court on Tuesday.

A 25-year-old woman is still being questioned by police.

Detectives say Mr Neil, a father of a three-year-old daughter, was at a party in Comber in County Down on Saturday night.

They believe he was murdered after the party at Church Gate apartments on Mill Street in the town.

His body was then placed in the boot of a blue Ford Fiesta before being driven to Island Hill car park on the shore of Strangford Lough and then on to Windsor Road.

Mr Neil's body was found at around 07.30 BST on Sunday morning after a member of the public contacted police.
