He claims he strangled Mr Greene as he thought he was being "erratic" and was going to stab him and claimed he had just been wanting to make Mr Greene pass out.

Peter Gair, has made his closing speech for the prosecution which was followed by the closing speech from Ian James, who defends Bruton.

The jury of seven men and five women was sent out to consider its verdict at 10.13am on Tuesday (November 26) morning after Judge Stephen Holt had summed up the case to them.
