Two women have been charged in connection with the murder of Simon Tang in Carrickfergus nearly 16 years ago.

Mr Tang, 28, who was married with two sons, was beaten and robbed as he left his takeaway business on 24 June 1996. The pair, aged 33 and 34, have been charged with perverting the course of justice. They are due in court next month.

Mr Tang’s murder featured on the BBC’s Crimewatch programme in March. No-one has been charged with his murder.

It is thought that two youths attacked him and stole less than £400 and his watch. He was taken to hospital but died from his injuries. In January, police said they were following new lines of inquiry and appealed for more help from the community.

Mr Tang was an Oxford University graduate, but instead of pursuing a career in architecture he took over the family business.
