Borneo student killings murder trial concludes
The trial of a Malaysian man accused of murdering two British medical students has ended.
Newcastle University students Aidan Brunger and Neil Dalton, both 22, were stabbed in a bar in Kuching in August.
Fishmonger Zulkipli Abdullah, 24, has denied their murder, but admitted being involved in a street fight with them along with two other men.
A judge will deliver a verdict on 31 March. If convicted, Mr Zulkipli faces a mandatory death sentence.
Mr Dalton, from Ambergate, Derbyshire, and Mr Brunger, from Hempstead, Kent, had almost completed a work placement at a hospital in Kuching.
They were found sprawled in the road by cafe workers in the early hours of 6 August last year.
The trial heard Mr Abdullah admitting being involved in a fight with the two students and punched one of them.
But he denied stabbing them or carrying a knife.
It is understood families of the two students will be present for the verdict.
