    The couple, both 31, came to Antigua for a two-week honeymoon following their July 12 marriage, police said.
    They were scheduled to return home Monday, their families said in a statement.
    "We are deeply shocked and devastated at the recent events in Antigua and are struggling to comprehend what has happened to Ben and Catherine," the families said.
    The wife was a doctor from the Pontardawe area of south Wales, the British Broadcasting Corp. reported.
    Police Inspector Cornelius Charles said that the motive appeared to be robbery but authorities had not ruled out other possibilities.

    The husband has now died, as well. The article stated that a joint funeral will be held in the same church where they were married on July 12. So, so sad. But maybe it was a blessing for him that he died without ever knowing his bride was gone as well.

    Scotland Yard is questioning a suspect:

    The net was tonight dramatically closing in on the killers of British honeymoon couple Benjamin and Catherine Mullany as police in Antigua arrested two women. They were charged in connection with the cold-blooded double murder at the couple’s romantic villa on July 27. It is believed the pair, aged 32 and 22, are accused of handling goods stolen from the Welsh newlyweds on the night they were gunned down at Cocos Hotel.
