Murder accused soldier jury retires to consider verdict

The jury in the trial of an ex-soldier accused of murdering his landlady has retired to consider its verdict.

Aaron Wilkinson, 24, is accused of murdering Judith Garnett, 52, by shooting her three times at their home in Alma Street, Woodlesford, Leeds.

Mr Wilkinson was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress reaction after a six-month tour of duty in Afghanistan.

He denies murder but admits manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility.
