Londonderry man Kieran McLaughlin has been found not guilty of murdering Barry McCrory at a flat in the city 15 months ago.

In delivering his reserved judgement, trial Judge Mr Justice Horner, who sat alone without a jury in the Diplock case, said there was no forensic evidence to link McLaughlin, of Elaghmore Park, Galliagh, to the murder.

McLauglin had previously pleaded guilty to possessing the firearms and a quantity of ammunition in suspicious circumstances.

He will be sentenced in May following the preparation of a pre-sentence report.
