A 21-year-old man has been charged in connection with the death of a Co Monaghan teenager.

He is due before Dungannon Magistrates' Court tomorrow.

Jason McGovern, 19, died after being assaulted on a night out in Omagh, Co Tyrone, last month.

After the attack he made his way to the border village of Emyvale, Co Monaghan, where he had been staying with friends.

He was found dead at midday on New Year's Eve.

A post mortem showed he had suffered serious head injuries.

An 18-year-old man who was arrested this morning has been released unconditionally.

A number of people have already been charged with affray in relation to the incident.
