The jury has been sent out in the case of a shopkeeper accused of murdering his postmistress wife.

Robin Garbutt, 45, denies bludgeoning his wife Diana, 40, three times over the head as she slept.

She was found in the living quarters above The Village Shop and Post Office in Melsonby, North Yorkshire.

Mr Garbutt told Teesside Crown Court that an armed robber had made him hand over cash and when he went upstairs he found his wife had been killed.
