American Missionary Couple Killed In Guyana

Georgetown, Guyana - The bodies of a slain American missionary couple have been found on a farm in Guyana.

Police in the South American country say Richard Hicks' body was badly burned, while his wife Charlene Hicks appeared to have been killed by a heavy blow.

The Hicks were missionaries with Wycliffe Bible Translators.

They'd been working in southern Guyana for five years, mostly translating the Bible into the indigenous language spoken by the main group in the remote area.
