Michaela's body back in Belfast
The plane carrying the body of murdered honeymooner Michaela McAreavey has arrived in Belfast from Mauritius.
The 27-year-old newlywed was strangled at the luxury Legends hotel on the Indian Ocean island on Monday. Her new husband, John McAreavey, found her dead in their room.
The alleged killers of the young teacher were hiding in her room and lunged at her only when she had closed the door, police have said.
One of the suspected killers - room attendant Avinash Treebhoowoon, 29 - has made a confession statement to police claiming that he and co-accused floor supervisor Sandip Moneea, 41, had been in the room to steal the couple's valuables. It is understood they had spotted a purse with cash in it while cleaning the day before.
The confessing killer alleges that after grappling with the bride, he held her down while Moneea strangled her. They then dragged her body to the bathroom and dumped her in the bath, turning on the tap before they fled.
It is understood that Treebhoowoon admitted the crime to officers after a third accused and fellow room attendant Raj Theekoy, 33, made a statement implicating him and Moneea.
There have been widespread tributes to the victim, whose father is one of Ireland's most celebrated sports figures, Co Tyrone GAA (Gaelic Athletic Association) manager Mickey Harte.
Mrs McAreavey's body arrived at George Best Belfast City Airport on a flight accompanied by her husband and his family.
Two of Mrs McAreavey's brothers, Michael and Matthew Harte were at the airport along with Bishop John McAreavey, uncle of the groom, who married the couple around a fortnight ago.
Her parents, Mickey and Marian Harte, awaited the coffin at home in Co Tyrone.
