Detectives in Armagh city have begun a murder inquiry after a man’s body was found on Friday.

It is understood 32-year-old Kevin Fletcher was found at his apartment on Castle Street near the Church of Ireland cathedral around midday.

Forensic teams were at the scene on Friday night and a post-mortem examination is to be carried out.

SDLP MLA for the area, Dominic Bradley, said people are ‘startled’ at the killing.

He said: “Any murder is chilling but when it takes place on your doorstep it is particularly harrowing.

He appealed for anyone with information to contact police.
