James Court murder - man charged

A man is due to appear in court this morning (Friday, November 8th) charged with the murder of a man in Lancaster.

Bernard McSorley, 52, of no fixed address, is charged with the murder of Paul McDonagh in the town between October 27th and 30th this year.

Mr McDonagh, 30, was found deceased at the rear of St James Court, Lancaster at shortly after 1.30pm on October 29th.

The death was initially treated as non-suspicious but following some further enquiries and a Home Office Post Mortem Examination which revealed Mr McDonagh had been stabbed, three people were arrested this week on suspicion of murder.

Two were later released without charge but McSorley was charged with murder and remanded to appear at Lancaster Magistrates this morning.
