POLICE have found an “item of evidence” they believe is connected to the murder of Steven Peck in Ballymoney.

However, at Coleraine Magistrates Court in Ballymena on Monday morning a police officer said she could not disclose what the item was at that stage.

The details emerged during a bail application by Stephen Derek McCook (28), of Urbal Road, Dervock, who is charged in relation to the death of Mr Peck (33) who died a number of days after being found badly injured close to the Joey Dunlop Leisure Centre in Ballymoney in January this year.

The police officer said a search for a phone has been unsuccessful.

Defence barrister Alan Stewart said the defendant has “denied any involvement in this incident”.

The police officer opposed bail saying witnesses were “in fear”.

District Judge Peter King refused the bail application saying he was concerned about any potential interference with witnesses.

Two other men are charged with murdering Mr Peck – David Austin (54), of Cherry Gardens, Ballymoney, and Stephen McCook’s brother Brian (24) – also of Urbal Road.
