The jury's deliberations resumed yesterday after the court was closed for an extended bank holiday weekend. They are expected to restart today.

Norwich Crown Court has heard how the 17-year-old engineering student from Yarmouth was beaten, tied to a tree, doused in petrol and set on fire at Mautby.

Prosecutors claim the incident happened because he had been in a relationship with the same girl as the two male defendants.

Jonathan Clarke, 19, from Telford; Jimi-Lee Stewart, 25, of Nelson Road Central, Yarmouth and Maria Chandler, 40, of Lancaster Road, Yarmouth, all deny murder.
