Dominica judge charges 3 in Irishman's murder

Taiwan News Online: "Authorities in Dominica have charged three men with murder and assault in an attack that killed an Irish national and wounded a U.S. couple who own a hotel on the eastern Caribbean island.
A magistrate charged the suspects Tuesday in the slaying of Joseph Costello, a 43-year-old Dublin native.

The trio were remanded to an island lockup. Defense attorney Wayne Norde did not speak to reporters.

Detectives say three masked men brandishing a machete, a hatchet and a plank of wood demanded money from the U.S. couple outside their Pagua Bay House hotel and restaurant in Marigot."
