New photos reveal how a British sailor murdered his wife while on their honeymoon in the Caribbean by intentionally sinking the small ship they were on.
British-Australian man Lewis Bennett has pleaded guilty to killing his new wife Isabella Hellman, 41, at sea and prosecutors are now seeking a maximum sentence.
Prosecutors have released photos of the damage Bennett allegedly inflicted on the ship's hull in an effort to sink it and make Hellman's death look like a tragic accident.
The FBI has accused Bennett, from Poole, Dorset, of intentionally sinking the ship in a bid to inherit his wife's estate in the horrific plot which unfolded on May 15, 2017.
The photos became crucial because they showed the portholes below the waterline of the vessel had been opened and the damage was inflicted from the inside.
