Michaela's body due back in Belfast this lunchtime

The body of Michaela McAreavey is due to arrive in Belfast around now.

The 27-year-old teacher was killed on Monday while on honeymoon on the island of Mauritius with her husband John.

Three staff members of the hotel where she was staying have been charged in connection with her murder.

Her funeral will take place on Monday at the church where she was married on December 30 last.

John's uncle Bishop John McAreavy says their wedding two weeks ago was a very happy occasion.

"Everybody at the wedding commented on the fact that both herself and John were almost aglow. I don't believe I've seen a happier, more excited bride," he said.
