Peter and Murium Green from Wellington, Somerset.(file photo).The British couple hacked to death on the paradise island of Tobago were the victim of a 'Caribbean Ripper' who will strike again, a friend warned. See swns story SWTOBAGO.Fellow Briton Peter Green, 71, believes he and his wife Murium were also attacked by the same bloodthirsty madman and an accomplice on the island six years ago.Peter was blinded in one eye and is now partially disabled after being left for dead and Murium needed extensive facial reconstruction after being slashed and stabbed. The couple now live in Wellington, Somerset where they are virtually housebound through fear of another attack - despite being more than 4,000 miles from Tobago. A 25 year-old man was charged with attempted murder shortly after the attack but the case was dropped through 'lack of evidence'. Peter fears the same person who attacked them is responsible for the savage killing of friends Richard and Grace Wheeler at their home on the island on Tuesday. The Wheelers, originally from Sheffield, South Yorks, were found with deep cut wounds at their home.Richard, a 73-year-old lawyer, and his wife Grace, 67, had lived in their two-storey villa in Carnbee for 16 years. Their bodies were discovered by their gardener. Peter says the use of a machete and a blunt instrument in that attack and the wounds the Wheelers were left with bears striking similarity to other attacks on the island. In 2008, Swedes Anna Sundsval and Ake Olson died in a similar attack. And last year Germans Hubertus Keil and his wife Birgid were also killed. Peter said: "This won't be the last - there's a serial killer there. I fear they have their own version of The Ripper.

SAN JUAN – Trinidad and Tobago authorities have detained three suspects in the murder of a British expat couple, a police spokesman said over the weekend.

The suspects who are said to be in their 20s, include a St. Vincent and the Grenadines national, and are expected to be formally charged in court today.

Richard Wheeler, 73, and wife Grace, 67, were found dead Tuesday inside their residence in Carnbee, Tobago, authorities said.

The couple, who moved to the twin-island Caribbean nation 16 years ago, were last seen alive Monday night.
