A man jailed for shooting dead Coleraine mother Marion Millican will face a retrial in September.

Fred McClenaghan, formerly of Broad Street, Magherafelt, was found guilty of murdering Mrs Millican, a mother of four, following a trial in 2012.

51-year-old Mrs Millican, was shot in the chest at her workplace in Portstewart, in March 2011. She died at the scene.

McClenaghan was sentenced to a minimum 16 years in jail two years ago, however he challenged the verdict, and in January the Court of Appeal ruled that the murder conviction should be quashed. The case is now listed for a retrial at Laganside Courts on Monday September 15.
