The jury in the trial of a man accused of murdering a pensioner in a burglary has been discharged after failing to reach a verdict.

Glynis Solmaz, 65, was killed at her Wrexham home in February, Mold Crown Court has heard.

Alexandros Wetherill, 24, from Wrexham, admitted her manslaughter but denied murder.

The judge Mr Justice John Griffith Williams told the court he expected there to be a retrial before Christmas.

Wetherill and three others have admitted conspiracy to burgle.
