Murdered bride 'put up a fight'
Michaela McAreavey, who was murdered on her honeymoon in Mauritius, had put up a struggle against her attackers, police said yesterday.
Mrs McAreavey, 28, was found strangled in the bath on Monday with the water still running. Skin was discovered beneath her fingernails indicating that she fought for her life probably having disturbed thieves.
She was the daughter of Mickey Harte, manager of the Gaelic football team Tyrone GAA. She married John McAreavey, a member of Down Gaelic football team, on 30 December.
Three men, all employees of the luxury Legends Hotel, have appeared in court charged in connection with her death and were remanded in custody.
