Police can confirm that two men aged 32 and 46 previously arrested by detectives investigating the murder of Natalie McNally have been released unconditionally.

A PSNI spokesperson said they are “no longer considered suspects in the case”.

A 32-year-old man was charged with Natalie’s murder and appeared in court on Thursday.

The accused is Stephen McCullagh (pictured), of Woodlands Gardens in Lisburn.

He was charged with the murder of Natalie and appeared before Lisburn Magistrates’ Court.

His appearance in court came more than six weeks after her brutal killing at her Silverwood Green home on Sunday, December 18.

Ms McNally and her unborn son Dean died as a result of the attack.

District Judge Rosie Watters refused bail and adjourned the case with the defendant to appear via videolink before Craigavon court on February 24.
