A jury in the trial of a woman accused of murdering her boyfriend during a drunken row on a canal boat has retired to consider its verdict.

Natasha Elderfield, 41, denies stabbing Robert Dobinson, 33, from Faringdon, on a boat in Abingdon last October.

The court heard she had an affair with another man and was confronted by the victim after she had been drinking.

Ms Elderfield, of no fixed address, has been on trial at Oxford Crown Court for two weeks.
