TWO MEN HAVE been arrested in connection with the murder of a man in Meath last year.

It’s believed he drove into the car park and was followed a few minutes later by a second car.

Butterly was then confronted by the occupants of the second car as he walked across the car park and was shot a number of times.

The assailants fled the scene in a car which turned left as it exited the car park. However the car was intercepted a short time later and four males were arrested by gardaí.

The men arrested this morning are aged in their 40s and 50s.
