Natalie McNally: Man charged with murder of pregnant woman stabbed in her home in Northern Ireland

A 32-year-old man has been charged with the murder of Natalie McNally, who was stabbed in her home in Northern Ireland.

The Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) said the man was arrested on 19 December and then re-arrested on 31 January in the Lisburn area.

He is due to appear at Lisburn Magistrates Court on Thursday.

Ms McNally, 32, was stabbed in her home in Lurgan, Co Armagh, on 18 December when she was 15 weeks pregnant.

Detectives investigating her murder carried out hundreds of house-to-house inquiries and seized more than 4,000 hours of CCTV footage.

More than 1,000 people gathered at a rally in her memory at Lurgan Park on Saturday.

The rally was organised by the National Women’s Council (NWC) and was attended by Natalie’s parents Noel and Bernie and her brothers Brendan, Niall and Declan.

A number of politicians were in attendance, including Sinn Fein’s Stormont leader Michelle O’Neill.

Many of those in attendance carried placards reading “Justice for Natalie” and “She was only at home” – while a number wore pink or blue items of clothing in memory of the mother-to-be.

A PSNI spokesperson said all charges will be reviewed by the Public Prosecution Service, as is normal procedure.
