Jury in Norwich stabbing trial hear closing speech by prosecution

A jury in the trial of a man accused of stabbing a man in Norwich and attempting to slash his friend, have heard the prosecution closing speech.

Munsey Varnadore, 20, of St Edmundsbury Road, King's Lynn, and Cain Watson, 22, of Angel Road, Norwich, have denied wounding Aaron Goffin with intent to cause GBH and attempting to wound Yamana Partridge with intent and possession of a knife on July 30, 2017. They also pleaded not guilty to alternative counts of unlawful wounding Mr Goffin and attempted wounding of Mr Partridge.

Norwich Crown Court heard how Mr Goffin was stabbed in the arm and his friend narrowly avoided being slashed in the face following an argument on Castle Meadow.

Watson declined to give evidence in his defence but in police interview denied providing Varnadore with the knife.

The jury will hear defence speeches on Tuesday, before the judge sums up.
