Michael McHugh

A MAN has appeared in court accused of obtaining a car which was later used in the killing of a prison officer in the North.

Damien Joseph McLaughlin, 36, was linked to the Toyota Camry, which was moved from the Republic to Northern Ireland before it was used in the murder of David Black, 52.

Father-of-two Mr Black, from Cookstown, Co Tyrone, was shot on a motorway in Co Armagh after a Toyota pulled alongside him at high speed while he drove to work at the high-security Maghaberry Prison.
