Manslaughter  

Yesterday, detectives from the PSNI Major Investigation Team arrested two men aged 52 and 40 on suspicion of manslaughter. They were taken into custody for questioning. 

Detectives conducted a search of a house in Moneymore at the time and seized a number of items. The 52-year-old man who was arrested yesterday was then further arrested on suspicion of possession of a Class A drug with intent to supply.
