A man accused of murdering British diplomat Rebecca Dykes in December admitted to charges brought against him during a court session before an investigative judge Wednesday, a judicial source told The Daily Star. The case was transferred to the public prosecutor by Mount Lebanon Investigative Judge Hana al-Baridi, who during a Wednesday hearing accused suspect Tarek Houshieh of Dykes' murder. Houshieh was arrested on Dec. 18, just days after Dykes' body was found by a highway outside Beirut. The judicial source, who attended the day's court session, said that Houshieh told the judge that the killing was not premeditated. The source said Houshieh also confessed to charges of rape.
