DETECTIVES from the PSNI’s Major Investigation Team have charged a 28-year-old man the murder of Paul McCauley.
Mr McCauley died last June nine years after he was attacked at a barbecue in Derry in 2006.
The man is also charged with grievous bodily harm and attempted GBH.
He is due to face Derry Magistrates’ Court today, Friday, April 8.
A 61-year-old man was arrested earlier today in Kent, England and flown back to Belfast for questioning.
He has now been charged with withholding information in relation to the murder
A third man, aged 27, has been released on bail pending a report to the Public Prosecution Service.
Mr McCauley was a 29-year-old civil servant when he was assaulted during a summer barbecue for a friend at Chapel Road on 16 July 2006.
In the early hours of the morning, a number of people came out from the bushes and attacked him and two of his friends.
At the time of the assault, police said they believed up to 15 people were involved.
The father-of-one suffered serious head injuries and never regained consciousness.
He died in a care facility in June 2015.
The following month, Piper John McClements, previously known as Daryl Proctor, was charged with Mr McCauley’s murder.
Mr McClements, from the Fountain area of Derry, is currently out on bail awaiting trial.
The other men, aged 27 and 28, were first arrested last year and subsequently released on bail.
They were both re-interviewed on Wednesday and the elder man was charged with murder on Thursday evening.
The 61-year-old man was arrested in Kent on Thursday morning and brought back to Northern Ireland for questioning.
He is due to appear in court on 4 May, charged with withholding information.
The officer leading the investigation, Detective Chief Inspector Michael Harvey, said: “We said after Paul died that this investigation would take on a renewed momentum and this momentum is continuing.
“Detectives are available to speak with anyone who decides they want to talk to us.
“Even after almost 10 years, it is not too late to do the right thing and come forward.
“Anyone with information about the attack and its tragic outcome can speak to detectives on the non-emergency number 101.”
