Man hands himself in over McCartney killing

A man has handed himself into the PSNI in connection with the killing of Robert McCartney. Hmmm. Is this news? Not really. That is until someone is actually charged at the very least, and preferably convicted before a public court. Considering the bar was systematically forensically cleansed and the few witnesses who’ve made statements are still saying nothing, this may turn out to be another case of sound and fury signifying nothing. This is shaping up to be a long, long wait.
