Prosecutors have charged controversial businessman Marián Kočner with ordering the murder of investigative journalist Ján Kuciak and his fiancée Martina Kušnírová. The pair were shot dead at their home in late February of last year. In September, four people including the alleged shooter were arrested. Kuciak had reported extensively on Kočner's dubious business deals and received verbal threats from him a few months before the murder. According to the prosecutor in charge of the investigation, Kuciak's journalistic work was the motive behind the murder.
