A man in Armagh has been arrested on suspicion of the murder of pregnant woman Natalie McNally.

A 32 year old man was taken to Musgrave Serious Crime Suite for questioning, the PSNI said.

32 year old Natalie was stabbed multiple times on Sunday in her home in the Silverwood Green area of Lurgan with police confirming she was 15 weeks pregnant at the time of her death.

“This fatal attack, which happened in her own home, has therefore resulted in a double tragedy: the death of a mother to be, along with her unborn baby,” Detective Chief Inspector John Caldwell said.

“Her death has left family and friends devastated, and the local community in shock.

“What should have been a happy time in the run-up to Christmas has changed to unimaginable grief and heartache.”
