Pair remanded over man's killing


A father and son have been remanded in custody at Belfast Magistrates Court charged with the murder of Gerard Devlin in the west of the city.

Mr Devlin, a father of six, was fatally stabbed at Whitecliff Parade on Friday.

Christopher Notarantonio, 53, of 4 Whitecliff Parade and William Notarantanio, 21, of the same address, are also charged with affray.

A detective told the court both men had said they had given their account of what happened when they were charged.

The officer said she believed she could connect both men to the murder charge and to the second charge of causing an affray.

Both were remanded in custody to appear by video link at the same court on 7 March.

There was a large police presence in and around the court for the hearing.
