The murder trial jury considering the case of Rhyl man Redvers James Bickley, 21, has been sent home for a second night.

They retired for three-quarters of an hour on Monday afternoon at Mold Crown Court and then resumed their deliberations at 10am today (Tuesday).

This afternoon at just before 4.30 p.m. Mr Justice Simon Picken sent the jury home to continue with their deliberations in the morning.

They have been out considering the case for more than seven hours.

The judge said that they had been working hard all day and it was time to go home.

Bickley is accused of murdering his housemate Tyler Denton, who he admits stabbing to death in September of last year.

But he denies her murder and the attempted murder of her two sisters Cody and Shannen, and their father Paul Denton who went to their aid.

Bickley says his alter ego James was responsible.

The prosecution say he was a fantastist, obsessed by Tyler, knew what he was doing when he dressed in black, got a flick knife, and growled and grunted as he carried out the attack at Llys Aderyn Du, Rhyl.

The defence called him a homicidal maniac and said his responsibility was diminished by an abnormality of mind.
