Police taking legal advice on extraditing murder suspects from Republic

The Belfast Telegraph has an update on the murders of Lisa McClatchey and Thomas O’Hare, beaten and burned alive at their home near Keady, County Armagh, in November last year by a gang of up to six men. Four brothers were admitted to hospital in Dundalk with burns injuries following the attack and later transferred to st James’ Hospital Dublin. By 1st February this year three of the four had been released from hospital and the Belfast Telegraph report suggests the fourth has also been released. Their father and another man have been charged in connection to the murders. Despite this detectives appear to have yet to interview the brothers and they have not returned to Northern Ireland since their release from hospital which, as the report points out, has left the police considering extradiction proceedings.
