(Newser) – A honeymooning groom wounded in what was apparently a botched robbery has died of his injuries, the Daily Telegraph reports. Ben Mullany, 31, was declared dead a week after his pediatrician bride died in the shooting in their honeymoon suite at a popular Antigua resort. The couple will be buried together after services in the same South Wales church where they were married three weeks ago.

Investigators are currently questioning a beach-roving marijuana dealer nicknamed "Cloud," known for his tendency to befriend vacationers. Police are acting on a reports that Cloud gave the newlyweds a car tour of the island, and are looking into whether he has an alibi for the evening of the suspected robbery.
