Arrest following Donegal woman's death in Northern Ireland

A man has been charged with the murder of a 35-year-old woman in County Fermanagh eight months ago.

Mrs Lu Na McKinney, a mother of two from Donegal who was originally from China, died while on a family holiday near Devenish Island in April.

Emergency services found her body in the water but attempts to resuscitate her failed.

Her death was initially thought to be a boating accident until detectives reviewed the evidence.

The suspect, who is 41, was arrested in Londonderry last week.

He has also been charged with possession of a Class C controlled drug.

He is due to appear before Omagh Magistrates' Court on Tuesday morning.
