Three more suspects charged in connection with Briton's death in Guyana

Authorities in Guyana have charged three more people in connection with the killing of an 18-year-old British man.

The suspects include a man and two women. They appeared on Friday night before a judge, who set their preliminary hearing for January 21.

They are suspected of helping two other men bury the victim, Dominic Bernard, and his camera equipment. The other suspects are already facing murder charges.

Bernard, from Epsom in Surrey, went missing shortly after arriving in the South American nation last October.

His body was found last week in a shallow grave in a farming village in south eastern Guyana. Authorities say Bernard's skull was bashed in and suspect robbery as a motive.
