The jury in the murder trial of Ben Blakeley at Oxford Crown Court has not yet reached a verdict.

The 22-year-old has admitted manslaughter and perverting the course of justice following the death of Jayden Parkinson on December 3 last year, but denies her murder.

His 17-year-old brother Jake, of Venners Water, Didcot, admits perverting the course of justice, but denies preventing a lawful burial.

The jury only sat for an hour and a half yesterday and will continue deliberating on Monday. Ben Blakeley, formerly of Christchurch Road, Reading, and his brother are in custody.
