A hotel worker accused of murdering Michaela McAreavey has told the trial that he called for a doctor when the honeymooner's body was discovered.
Sandip Moneea told police that he phoned reception at the Legends Hotel in Mauritius when the Co Tyrone teacher was found strangled and asked for medical assistance.
Statements he made to detectives in the days following the crime were read to his trial by a senior investigating officer, Ranjit Jokhoo.
In them, Mr Moneea said: "I don't know anything in that murder case. I heard that the woman got killed but I don't know who killed her."
Mr Moneea and co-accused and fellow Legends employee Avinash Treebhoowoon, 31, are standing trial in the Supreme Court in Port Louis. Both deny the murder in January last year.
The prosecution claims Mr Moneea and Mr Treebhoowoon killed the 27-year-old Ballygawley woman when she returned to her room and caught them stealing.
In the interviews with police, Mr Moneea said he was working in other rooms at the hotel when Mrs McAreavey was strangled in room 1025.
Mr Moneea said he only became aware of the incident when the hotel manager sprinted past him in the direction of the room and he followed.
The hotel worker said he stood outside the room and watched manager Brice Lunot perform CPR on Mrs McAreavey but insisted he did not enter inside the door or touch her.
He added: "Then I went to another room to call the operator to call a doctor."
Mrs McAreavey's widower John watched from the public gallery as Mr Moneea was ordered by judge Mr Justice Prithviraj Fecknah to stand up as his statements were read to the jury.
Mr McAreavey was accompanied by his brother-in-law Mark Harte.
