JURORS have retired this morning (Thursday) to consider their verdict in the Jack Wall murder trial.

Seven men and five women will decide whether Wall, 22, murdered his former girlfriend Amelia Arnold at their home in Hadrian’s Walk, Stevenage, last November.

Wall admits killing the 19-year-old with a dumbbell bar but denies murder.

Before asking the jury to retire, judge Aiden Marron QC finished summing up the evidence at Blackfriars Crown Court in London from a trial which started on July 3.
