THE jury in the Mark Russell and Kelly Sanchez murder trial have been sent home over Easter.

The six men and six women deciding the fate of the pair accused of killing 40-year-old John Redhead were unable to reach a verdict after the first day of deliberations (Wednesday).

Due to the Easter break Judge Michael Baker told the jury they would recommence considering their verdicts on Wednesday, March 26.

Russell, 31, of Chester Close, Little Heath, admitted stabbing Potters Bar dad-of-two Mr Redhead four times, but claimed he did so in self-defence.

He pleads not guilty to murder.

Kelly Sanchez, 21, of Mutton Lane, Potters Bar, denies aiding and abetting Russell.
