Mr Fraser-Rennie’s body was discovered on Wednesday

Two men appeared in court by video link charged with the murder of Donald Fraser-Rennie in Ballymena.

The body of the 33-year-old man was found in a Crebilly Road apartment in the Ballykeel estate on Wednesday.

Samuel Hugh Atcheson, 33, of Crebilly Road, and Stephen Hunter, 29, of Lanntara in the town, have been remanded in custody.

Police said the victim was the victim of a “vicious, sustained and violent” attack.

A police officer told Belfast Laganside Court that police believe they can link the two defendants to the charges.

One of the suspects requested, through his lawyer, that a second autopsy report be made on the deceased.

There was no request for bail.

The pair are scheduled to appear in court again via video link on October 29.
