Detective Inspector Erin Renwick said: “Following post mortem examinations the death of the 60-year-old man is being treated as murder.

“He can now be named as James Mooney and his family has been informed.

“The death of the 23-year-old man is not being treated as suspicious.

“Although our detailed investigation is continuing to establish the exact circumstances, we do believe that it was contained within this house and we are not looking for anyone else in connection with this incident.”
