A 50-year-man, who had already been charged with perverting the course of justice, is due to appear in court on Tuesday. 

Two other men remain before the courts on other charges relating to the death. 

"Police are still interested in hearing from anyone with information that may be useful to us about what happened," a statement said. 

Anyone with information is urged to contact 105, quoting file number 230610/2652.
