Software pioneer John McAfee denies Belize murder


The founder of the anti-virus software firm McAfee has denied murdering one of his neighbours in Belize.

John McAfee said he did not kill fellow American Gregory Faull, who was found shot dead on Sunday on Ambergris Caye island, off the Belize coast, where both men lived.

Police in Belize say he is a "person of interest" in their inquiries into Mr Faull's murder.

Mr McAfee says he is hiding from police out of fear they want to kill him.
