Speaking on the issue Carla Lockhart MLA said, "My sympathies are with the family of the deceased.  This is a very alarming news in what is a very quiet residential area.  I am continuing to liaise with the PSNI however, it would appear that that in the early hours of the morning a call was made to the PSNI.  They attended a house in Toberhewny Lane where a 51 year old woman was found dead. A 51 year old man has been arrested and remains in custody.

My thoughts and prayers are very much with those involved.  A family has been left bereaved with such a tragic loss.  The police are treating this as a murder investigation and therefore I would encourage anyone who has any information to come forward to the PSNI.

This is a quiet residential area on the edge of Lurgan.  Neighbours will be very alarmed at such happenings.  The scene has been cordoned off and will remain that way whilst investigations are ongoing."
