Two men convicted of Antigua honeymoon murder

Two men have been found guilty of murdering a British couple on the Caribbean island of Antigua in 2008.

Catherine and Ben Mullany were shot in their cottage at Cocos Hotel two weeks after getting married.

Kaniel Martin, 23, and Avie Howell, 20, protested their innocence throughout their two-month trial, which saw more than 90 witnesses give evidence.

But the men have been found guilty by a jury in Antigua's High Court in St John's.

The pair was also charged with murdering 43-year-old Jamaican shopkeeper Woneta Anderson.

The family said in a statement: "There is no joy at today's verdict, just a sense of relief that after three years of waiting there is justice for our children - and for Woneta Anderson and her family.

"These two individuals can never again inflict the same anguish and devastation to any other family as they have to ours."
