John Mc Areavey still in Mauritius as his evidence is delayed

The trial of two men charged with the murder of Michaela McAreavey has heard that no DNA from either of the accused was found in her hotel room in Mauritius or on her body.

Mrs McAreavey, a 27-year-old teacher, was found dead during her honeymoon at the Legends Hotel in January 2011.

Hotel workers Avinash Treebhoowoon, 30, and Sandip Moneea, 42, deny murder.

Today, the Supreme Court in Mauritius heard evidence from an Oxford based forensic scientist Susan Woodroffe, who examined samples from Mrs McAreavey's body, as well as swabs taken from the hotel room.

The scientist said that the results of her tests revealed "no specific indication" of DNA from either of the accused. However, an additional key card for the couple's room was found to contain the DNA of a security guard at the Legend's Hotel who was charged with conspiracy to murder in the days after the killing.

He faces a larceny charge in connection with the case in separate court proceedings.

Mrs McAreavey's husband John, was due to give evidence at the Supreme Court today but that has now been delayed due to a backlog of witnesses.

Meanwhile, it's emerged that what was described as a booklet relating to sexual matters found in the hotel room was an insert from a women's magazine, according to her family.

She had bought the Cosmopolitan magazine at the airport.
