A woman from Co Armagh has been charged in connection with the murder of prison officer David Black, who was shot dead on the M1 motorway in November 2012.

He was killed as he drove to work in Maghaberry Prison.

Fiona McFadden, from Killough Gardens, Lurgan, is accused of attempting to pervert the course of justice by supplying a false alibi for a suspect in the murder. 

She was released on bail on condition that she makes no contact with two men who are already facing charges relating to the murder of Mr Black.
