Donegal mum Lu Na McKinney, 35, died after entering the water at Devenish Island in Co Fermanagh two years ago.
Her husband, 42-year-old Stephen McKinney, formerly of The Flax Fields in Lifford, Co Donegal but with an address now on the court papers as Castletown Square in Fintona, Co Tyrone, is charged with murdering her on dates between April 11 and April 14, 2017.
During an arraignment hearing at Belfast Crown Court today, Friday, April 12, McKinney replied “not guilty” when the murder charge was put to him.
He was released on his own bail of £500.
His month long trial will start at Dungannon Crown Court on Monday, September 30.
