Two people have been charged with the murder of a man in east Belfast at the weekend.

The 26-year-old woman and 25-year-old man were arrested at the scene on Saturday morning and have been charged with murder.

The body of 53-year-old Mark Ponisi was found in the living room of a flat in London Road, off Ravenhill Avenue.

The PSNI said the victim appeared to have sustained a number of injuries to his head and face.

The two accused are due to appear at Belfast Magistrates Court later today.
