JURORS in the Amelia Arnold murder trial have been sent home today (Thursday) as defendant Jack Wall is ill.

Wall, 22, of Hadrian’s Walk, Stevenage, had been expected to take to the stand at Blackfriars Crown Court this morning, over the murder of his former girlfriend Miss Arnold.

But the clerk of the court told the Comet: “The defendant wasn’t well.”

No evidence was heard and the case has subsequently been adjourned until tomorrow morning.

Wall admits killing the 19-year-old, whose body was found in a shallow grave in Hatfield on November 11 last year, but denies murder.
