The body of Mr Kearney, 46, was found in a lake in Alexandra Park on Wednesday, 9 October.

The father-of-four had been out walking his dogs the previous day when he was fatally shot, and his body dumped in the lake. The alarm was raised when the animals returned home without him.

On Thursday morning, the suspect was arrested by the PSNI's Serious Crime Branch officers in the north of the city and taken to Antrim police station for questioning.

He will also be interviewed about an incident in a social club in Ardoyne on Monday, 14 October in which dissident republican threats were made to a number of individuals.
