A man has been sent for Crown Court trial charged with perverting the course of justice in relation to the investigation into the murder of Randalstown businessman Nelson Cheung.

Christopher McGolpin (25), of Craighill, Antrim, is accused of making false claims to have discarded a mobile phone in relation to the investigation into the murder of the businessman last January.

The offence is alleged to have been committed between January 19 to May 5 of last year.

McGolpin made no reply in response to the charge during a preliminary enquiry at Antrim Magistrates Court today.

A Prosecution lawyer submitted on behalf of the Crown that McGolpin has a case to answer.

The case was adjourned for McGolpin to be arraigned at Antrim Crown Court on June 30.
