Honeymooner back to face trial

AN American accused of drowning his wife during a honeymoon scuba diving trip to the Great Barrier Reef arrived in Australia yesterday to stand trial for murder.

Police arrested David Gabriel Watson, 32, of Birmingham, Alabama, on his arrival at the Brisbane airport. A Queensland state Supreme Court judge remanded him in custody and adjourned the case until May 29.

Watson is charged with murdering Christina Mae Watson on October 22, 2003. The couple were diving off the tropical Queensland coast 11 days after their wedding.

Watson, who has remarried, faced extradition if he had not returned voluntarily.
