A 47-year-old man arrested in connection with the murder of Kevin McGuigan has been released from custody.

Mr McGuigan (53), a father of nine, was shot dead in front of his wife in the republican Short Strand area of east Belfast in August. The suspect was detained in west Belfast by officers from the PSNI's serious crime branch and questioned at a city centre station.

However, he was released from custody yesterday pending a report to the Public Prosecution Service.
