The jury in the Gerald Corrigan murder trial has retired to consider their verdicts.

The 74 year-old retired lecturer, originally from Lancashire was shot outside his remote home near Holyhead in the early hours of Good Friday last year. He died from his injuries in hospital nearly a month later.

Terence Whall (38) of Bryngwran denies killing Mr Corrigan by shooting a crossbow and conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.

Gavin Jones (36) of Bangor denies perverting the course of justice and conspiracy to commit arson by torching a Land Rover Discovery vehicle linked with the case.

During the trial at Mold Crown Court, two other defendants, Martin Roberts (34) of Bangor and Darren Jones (41) of Penrhosgarnedd pleaded guilty to arson charges.

The jury retired on Thursday afternoon following the summing up of the case by Justice Nerys Jefford. They were sent home after three hours, but are due to resume their deliberations on Friday morning.
