Norwich: Jury Retires In Bus Conductor Murder Case

30 January 2013, 14:03

The jury in the trial of a couple accused of murdering a former bus conductor in Norwich has retired to consider their verdict.

Kelly Barnes, 32, and Jodie Barnes, 31, are accused of targeting retired bus conductor Barry Reeve, believing he had large sums of cash.

The 67-year-old remained alive for up to 48 hours after being punched, stamped on and cut with a knife.

The trial at Norwich Crown Court heard evidence that the two drug addicts returned to his terraced bungalow in Corton Road, Norwich, to steal food and valuables while he was still fighting for life.

His body was found in his home two weeks later when his daughter called to visit.

The women, of Bixley Close, Norwich, who are in a civil partnership, both deny murder.

They each claim that the other was responsible for the killing.

The jury of eight women and four men retired to consider its verdict at 1.20pm.
