The 22-year-old was detained in the Antrim area by officers from the PSNI Serious Crime Branch on Monday morning.

Mr Acheson, 72, suffered a heart attack after he confronted a robber at his Glenmore Gardens home in the early hours of Monday 30 April.

The woman is being questioned at Antrim Serious Crime Suite.

It comes after a 39-year-old man was arrested last month and released on police bail in connection with the murder.
