Jurors at Norwich Crown Court were today sent home for the day, as they were on Friday, with the trial due to resume tomorrow at 10.30am.

The body of 67-year-old Barry Reeve, a former Eastern Counties worker, was discovered by officers at his home on Corton Road, off City Road, Norwich on February 26 last year.

Kelly Louise Barnes, 32, and Jodie Barnes, formerly Ramsbottom, 31, who are civil partners and live at Bixley Close, Norwich, both deny murdering Mr Reeve, who was known as Titch or Schweppes to his friends.
