Mauritius:Michaela McAreavey's widower John will not return to witness stand in Mauritius

John McAreavey appeared as a prosecution witness on Wednesday

Prosecutors in the Michaela McAreavey murder trial will not recall her husband to the witness stand.

A prosecution lawyer had said John McAreavey had "mixed up" some of the dates in his evidence on Wednesday.

Following an objection from the defence, he will not have to return to court to give a clarification.

Avinash Treebhoowoon, 30, and Sandip Moneea, 42, both deny murdering the County Tyrone teacher in her honeymoon suite in Mauritius in January 2011.

On Friday, the court is due to hear from a room service attendant at the Legends Hotel where Mrs McAreavey was killed.
