Bride murdered on her honeymoon, buried in her wedding dress

According to AP:

Tens of thousands of people have attended the funeral in Northern Ireland of a 27-year-old schoolteacher strangled on her honeymoon on the resort island of Mauritius. Mourners packed narrow country lanes leading to a Catholic Church to honor Michaela Harte McAreavey. Her widower, Gaelic footballer John McAreavey, and father Mickey Harte led pallbearers carrying her coffin. She was buried in her wedding dress. McAreavey was known as Ulster's candidate in the 2004 Rose of Tralee, Ireland's traditional beauty pageant, and as a match-day sidekick to Harte, a national championship-winning Gaelic football coach. Mauritian police say she was strangled a week ago after encountering burglars in her honeymoon suite. Three hotel employees have been charged in connection with her slaying.
