Judge Ian Pringle QC will this morning summarise the evidence in the trial of Barton murder-accused Lewis Brown. 

The 20-year-old denies murdering Lee Butler, 39, in a park off Bayswater Road, Barton, on October 8 last year. 

On Friday, jurors at Oxford Crown Court heard speeches from prosecution and defence barrister. 

Judge Pringle, the honorary Recorder of Oxford, will 'sum up' the case to the 12-strong panel this morning. 

Prosecutors say Brown fatally stabbed customer Mr Butler in a rage after accusing the older man of 'chatting s***' about the quality of the drugs being sold through the defendant's 'Bob' drugs line.

Lawyers for Brown, however, say Mr Butler attempted to rob the younger man of cash or drugs and the defendant acted in self defence. 

Brown, of Barton Village Road, Oxford, denies murder and possession of a blade. The trial continues.
