DETECTIVES from the PSNI’s Major Investigation Team have launched a murder inquiry after the discovery of a man’s body.
The probe centres around around a house in the Carrivekeeney Road area of Newry on Thursday.
Brian Phelan, who was in his 30s, was found stabbed to death in the property.
A man aged 27 has been arrested, and is currently in custody assisting with police enquiries.
Detective Chief Inspector Eamon Corrigan from MIT said: “I am appealing to anyone with any information which could assist detectives with their enquiries to contact detectives in Newry on 101.
“Alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.”
