Joanna trial jury considers verdict

The jury in the Joanna Yeates murder trial has retired for the night and will resume considering its verdict on Friday.

Mr Justice Field has urged the six men and six women trying her neighbour Vincent Tabak to reach a unanimous verdict.

The defendant, 33, denies murder but admits the manslaughter of Miss Yeates, 25, at her flat in Clifton, Bristol, last December.

The judge said the jury needs to focus on what Tabak's intention was at the time she died.

The jury resumed deliberations on Thursday morning after spending three hours considering its conclusion on Wednesday afternoon.
