JURORS in the Amelia Arnold murder trial have been sent home as defendant Jack Wall is ill.
Wall, 22, of Hadrian’s Walk, Stevenage, had been expected to take the stand today (Thursday), at Blackfriars Crown Court, over the murder of former Welwyn Garden City schoolgirl Miss Arnold.
But the clerk of the court told the Welwyn Hatfield Times: “The defendant wasn’t well.”
No evidence was heard and the case has subsequently been adjourned until tomorrow morning.
Wall denies murdering the 19-year-old, whose body was found in a shallow grave in Travellers Lane, Hatfield on November 11, last year.
Bloodied carpet was also discovered in Hollybush Lane, Welwyn Garden City, on the same day.
But he admits manslaughter.
The trial continues.
