Police made an application at Ballymena Magistrates Court on February 14 to be given 24 hours to question Angela Irwin who is currently facing a charge of fraud.

The defendant (53), of Devenagh Court in Ballymena, is alleged to have committed fraud by false representation by ordering prescription medication with the intention of causing a loss to the Northern Health and Social Services Trust between November 21/22 in 2018.

The charge followed the death of Robin McMaster (40), whose body was found at Devenagh Court on November 22.

On November 22, police said the death was being treated as murder.

Irwin had originally been arrested on suspicion of murder before being released on bail pending further enquiries.

She was then re-arrested and charged with fraud by false representation.

On November 29, police then said: “Following our enquiries we are no longer treating this is as a murder investigation. CID detectives in Ballymena are however continuing to look into the circumstances of his death.”

A previous court heard it alleged that Irwin had taken “prescription medication belonging to a deceased person”.

She was in the dock at Ballymena Magistrates Court on Thursday where a police officer said they wished to question the defendant about possible “separate offences”.

She was remanded into police custody at Antrim Custody Suite.
