Pair given life sentences for Michael McIlveen murder

Two Ballymena men have been given life sentences for the murder of a schoolboy seven years ago.

Fifteen-year-old Michael McIlveen died from brain injuries the day after he and two friends were attacked in 2006.

Christopher Francis Kerr, 26, from Carnduff Drive and Aaron Cavana Wallace, 24, from Moat Road, pleaded guilty at the trial on Wednesday.
