The 38-year-old suspect was detained in the north of the city on Monday morning.
He was taken to Antrim police station where he was also questioned about an incident in a social club in Ardoyne on 14 October last year, during which dissident republican threats were made to a number of individuals.
The body of Mr Kearney, 46, was found in a lake in Alexandra Park on Wednesday, 9 October a day after he'd been reported missing. He had been fatally shot.
The father-of-four had been out walking his dogs and the alarm was raised when the animals returned home without him.
