The jury in the trial of Liam Jurrah started early this morning but has still not retired to consider its verdict. Chief Justice Trevor Riley has been taking them through the things they must consider, in particular matters of law of which he, of course, is the judge. The jury however is the judge of the facts but in this too they have received plenty of guidance. KIERAN FINNANE reports.
