Four suspects in journalist Jan Kuciak's murder held in custody | DW |

A court in Slovakia on Sunday ordered four people charged with the murder of investigative journalist Jan Kuciak and his fiancee, Martina Kusnirova, to be kept in jail until their trial.

Three of the suspects were among eight people detained in a house raid on Thursday morning. The fourth suspect was arrested separately on Friday. Five others have been released, the prosecutor's office said.

Police said a former investigator and former soldier are among the perpetrators, according to The Slovak Spectator newspaper. It is not yet clear when they will face trial.

The killings sparked massive protests that forced the resignations of then Prime Minister Robert Fico and Interior Minister Robert Kalinak, as well as Slovak police chief Tibor Gaspar.
