A man accused of murdering the Belfast man, Robert McCartney, outside a pub in the city last January has been remanded on bail. 

Terrence Davidson, who is 49 and from Stainfield Place in the Markets area of Belfast, will appear again before Belfast Magistrates Court in November. 

He was released earlier this month on bail, but ordered to have no contact with the McCartney family. 

Mr McCartney died after he was stabbed and beaten outside Magennis's Bar in Belfast city centre on 30 January.

Since the killing, Mr McCartney’s sisters and his fiancée, Bridgeen Hagans, have maintained that IRA members were involved and have campaigned for the killers to be brought to justice.
