UPDATE, 4:50pm: Unless there is a verdict earlier, the Judge will call the jury back at 5:15pm to check on their progress.

 

UPDATE, 3.10pm: The jury has retired. Liam Jurrah is waiting with family members in the lobby. Under bail conditions at this stage of the trial he is not allowed to leave the court. He maintains a remarkable calm as throughout this trial.

 

EARLIER TODAY:

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.
