A 22-year-old man has been charged with the murder of a man slashed to death in front of his heavily pregnant wife.

John Mongan, 30, sustained almost 50 wounds in the fatal attack in west Belfast in February 2008.

At least two blades, one believed to be either a sword or axe, were used.

His wife Julia Mongan, who was due to give birth within days, witnessed the horrific incident in their Fallswater Street home.

The charged man is due to appear before a magistrate in Belfast.

Three males were convicted of the murder three years ago.
