Antigua Honeymoon Killer Shot And Captured

An escaped murderer who killed a British couple on their honeymoon has been shot during a confrontation with police and captured.

Antigua police saidAvie Howell was shot by a local officer in a remote part of the island earlier on Friday.

He had absconded from Antigua’s jail on Thursday.

In 2011 Howell was sentenced to life in prison alongside accomplice Kaniel Martin for the murders of Ben and Catherine Mullany three years earlier.

The Mullanys, from Pontardawe, South Wales, were attacked in their hotel room on the holiday island.

The couple, both aged 31, had been married for little more than a fortnight.

Howell escaped from Her Majesty’s Prison on the island, along with Kenroy Laurie Marshall, who had been detained on fraud charges.

Police said both were considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached.

Howell and Martin broke into Mr and Mrs Mullany’s chalet at the Cocos Hotel in a dawn raid in July 2008.

The couple, who lived in Rhos, near Pontardawe, were both shot in the head before their killers made off with their phones, a digital camera and cash.

Mrs Mullany, a doctor, died instantly. Her husband, a physiotherapy student, was flown home on a life-support machine.

The former South Yorkshire Police officer died a week after the shooting, despite the best efforts of his wife’s colleagues at Morriston Hospital in Swansea.
