Police arrested Stephen McKinney in Londonderry and he was later charged with murdering his wife of 15 years, which he denies.

Last week a detective told Omagh Magistrates Court that he believed Ms McKinney’s death was premeditated.
The detective also expressed his opposition to bail, fearing that the 41 year old may flee to China where he owns property and money.
