Jurors in the case of a woman accused of murdering her love rival have retired to consider their verdict.

Sadie Hartley, 60, was stunned with a cattle prod and stabbed 40 times in Helmshore, Lancashire, on 14 January.

Sarah Williams of Treborth Road, Blacon, Chester, and co-defendant Katrina Walsh, 56, of Hare Lane, Chester, deny murder.

Lord Justice Turner completed his summing up earlier before sending the jury out at Preston Crown Court.
