The jury in the murder trial of Ben Blakeley was sent home yesterday and will continue deliberating on Thursday.

The 22-year-old, formerly of Christchurch Road, Reading, admits killing Jayden Parkinson on December 3 last year and perverting the course of justice by hiding her body, but denies her murder.

His 17-year-old brother Jake Blakeley, of Venners Water, Didcot, has also admitted perverting the course of justice, but denies preventing a lawful burial.

Both defendants are in custody.
