A 21-year-old man has been charged with the manslaughter of a Co Monaghan teenager.

Jason McGovern, 19, died after being assaulted on a night out in Omagh, Co Tyrone, last month.

After the attack the teenager had made his way to the border village of Emyvale, Co Monaghan, where he had been staying with friends, and was found dead at midday on New Year's Eve. He had suffered serious head injuries.

The charged man was arrested in the Omagh area with an 18-year-old man.

The teenager was later released without charge.

The 21-year-old is due to appear in court in Dungannon on Wednesday morning.

A number of people have already been charged with affray in relation to the incident.
