Image Hosted by ImageShack.usTwo men aged 19 and 23 have been arrested by police in Belfast in connection with the murder of Gerard Devlin in Belfast last Friday.

Earlier today two other men appeared at Belfast Magistrates Court charged with the murder.

Christopher Notarantonio, 53, and his son, William, 21, both of the same address at Whitecliff Parade in Ballymurphy, west Belfast, were charged with murdering Gerard Devlin.

A solicitor for the two men told the court they would not be making a bail application due to 'ongoing activity' in the Ballymurphy area.

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

Mr Devlin, a father of six, was stabbed to death in an attack in Whitecliff Parade last Friday as he arrived at his partner's home to collect his children for the weekend.

Meanwhile, police are investigating a possible link between a series of arson attacks at houses in the Ballymurphy area yesterday, and the murder.

Two fires were started at one property on Whitecliff Parade within a five-hour period.

A further two properties on the street were also targeted.
