Ben and Catherine Mullany Antigua murder trial delayed

BBC News "The trial of two men accused of the murder of a honeymoon couple in Antigua has been delayed.

Avie Howell and Kaniel Martin were due to appear in the Caribbean island's High Court on Monday to answer charges of killing newlyweds Ben and Catherine Mullany.

But the matter has now been adjourned for a further 10 days.

Mr Mullany's uncle said the families said they had been waiting 'too long' for the case to begin.

It is nearly three years since qualified doctor Mrs Mullany and her student physiotherapist husband Ben, both from Pontardawe near Swansea, were shot in their hotel chalet at Antigua's five-star Cocos Hotel on July 27, 2008 - just over a fortnight after the couple had married."
