Second Man Sues Mauritian Police Over Michaela McAreavey Murder

A second man acquitted of the murder of Michaela McAreavey in Mauritius is seeking compensation from the island's authorities.

The 27-year-old was killed at the Legends Hotel last year while she was on her honeymoon.

Avinash Treebhoowoon and Sandip Moneea were cleared of the killing.

Earlier this month Mr Treebhoowoon said he will also be suing the police on the island.

Mr Moneea, 43, wants compensation of 80m Mauritian rupees, almost £1.6 million.

A new investigation into her killing is being investigated by detectives.
