The man, who is from the Antrim area, is due to appear at the Ballymena Magistrates' Court on Thursday.

Mr Acheson suffered a fatal heart attack when robbers broke into his home in the Glenmore Gardens area in April this year.

His disabled wife raised the alarm but by the time ambulance and police arrived, the 72-year-old had died.

A 23-year-old woman has previously been charged with his manslaughter.
