The jury in the Simon Everitt murder trial was last night sent home without reaching verdicts after 11 hours of deliberation.

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.
