Yeates 'strangled for 20 seconds' by Tabak, court hears
Vincent Tabak said he strangled Joanna Yeates for 20 seconds after she screamed when he put his arm around her, a court has been told.
Extracts from Tabak's defence statement were read out to the jury at Bristol Crown Court for the first time.
The 33-year-old Dutch engineer admits Miss Yeates's manslaughter, but denies her murder in Bristol last December.
