Horror In Antigua

Murdered on their honeymoon

The husband of a British doctor shot dead in their honeymoon hotel room is in a critical condition in a coma with a bullet lodged in his brain, police have said.
Benjamin Mullany, a 31-year-old physiotherapist, is in the intensive care unit of the island’s only hospital with injuries including a fractured skull, damage to the spinal cord, brain haemorrhaging and a broken leg, according to sources.
His wife, Catherine, also 31, died instantly after she was shot in the side of the head after an intruder broke into their cottage at the Cocos Hotel in the early hours of Sunday morning.

…Just hours before she was shot dead Mrs Mullany had reportedly sent a text to a friend calling Antigua “beautiful and lush like the Garden of Eden.”
The friend said that the hospital doctor had told her she had “never been happier” at her wedding on July 12. She added: “I can’t talk much, I’m so choked up. Cath had only just texted me to say she was having the best time of her life, and joked about how grown-up she felt being married. I can’t believe she’s gone.”

My god, just awful. Those poor dears.
