Detectives investigating the murder of 31-year-old Laura Marshall in Lurgan last April arrested a 28-year-old man in the Craigavon area on Tuesday morning.

Ms Marshall's body was discovered at her flat in Victoria Street, Lurgan, on Sunday 3 April 2016.

In April a PSNI detective said officers had found a "violent scene" in the bathroom, which was destroyed, with a pool of blood on the floor.

Detective Chief Inspector Eamonn Corrigan, from Serious Crime Branch, said: "The suspect was interviewed today and subsequently released pending a report being submitted to the Public Prosecution Service."
