BRATISLAVA (Reuters) - Slovakia's state prosecutor has charged three people with the premeditated murder of investigative reporter Jan Kuciak and his fiancee in February, a spokeswoman said on Friday.

The three people were detained in a house raid on Thursday morning. Five others detained in the same raid have been released, the spokeswoman said.

Kuciak's killing seven months ago sparked the biggest street protests in Slovakia since the fall of communism in 1989.
