A 22-year-old woman has been arrested by detectives investigating the murder of Coleraine pensioner Bertie Acheson.

Mr Acheson, 72, was assaulted after he confronted an intruder in his Glenmore Gardens home on 30 April.

He suffered a heart attack during the burglary which detectives said was brought on by stress.

The woman was arrested in the Antrim area on Monday and taken to the town’s police station.
