3 Charged in Mauritius Honeymoon Murder

3 Charged in Mauritius Honeymoon Murder - Three hotel employees were charged in Mauritius on Wednesday in connection with the murder of an Irish woman honeymooning on the Indian Ocean island, its commissioner of police told Irish radio.

Michaela Harte, the 27-year-old daughter of Gaelic football manager Mickey Harte, was found strangled at the Legends Hotel in the village of Grande Gaube on Monday.

"They have been provisionally charged with murder. Two have been charged (with murder), the other one ... has been charged with conspiracy," Dhun Rampersad told state broadcaster RTE.

Mauritius police said two of the three men charged have confessed to the murder, according to RTE.

The men have been remanded in police custody for a week and will return to court next Wednesday, when they are expected either to be formally charged or released.

One of the defendants asserted in court that he had been beaten while being questioned by police.

The murder of the Irish language teacher dominated the news in Ireland, with photos from her Dec. 30 wedding splashed across front pages and an emotional statement by her father broadcast on all news programmes.

Harte, a former beauty queen contestant, was known for being by her father's side during his All-Ireland football triumphs with the Northern Irish county of Tyrone.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
