The jury in the trial of four men accused of killing Trimley father-of-five Dean Stansby is expected to continue its deliberations tomorrow.

The jury retired to consider its verdicts today and was sent home at the end of the day without reaching any verdicts.

Before Ipswich Crown Court are Jason Ruby, 45, of Risby Close, Ipswich, Tecwyn Parker, 48, of Downside Close, Ipswich, Daniel Kaganda, 24, of London and Amiadul Islam, 25, of London, who all deny murdering Mr Stansby, 41, on February 8 last year.

During the trial, which started in April, the court heard that Mr Stansby came into Ipswich on the evening of his death to buy drugs from the “AJ and Sky” ring.

Jacob Hallam QC, prosecuting, has alleged that Parker, Ruby and Kaganda had gone to confront Mr Stansby in retaliation for an earlier incident in which he had allegedly tried to rob Parker of some drugs.

He claimed that Islam was in telephone contact with his three co-defendants during the confrontation in Ancaster Road.
