Lawrence trial: Gary Dobson's mother says son at home during killing

Murder suspect Gary Dobson was at home with his parents on the night black teenager Stephen Lawrence was killed, his mother has told the Old Bailey.

Pauline Dobson also said he never wore the jacket or cardigan at the heart of the case linking him to Stephen.

But in cross examination she admitted she could have got her timings wrong on when she had seen her son in the house.

Mr Dobson, 36, and David Norris, 35, deny murdering Mr Lawrence, 18, in Eltham, south-east London, in 1993.
