A jury has been sworn in for the trial of a man accused of the murder of a 60-year-old gardener on the Isle of Man.

Neil Roberts from Ballabeg was found dead at a house on Queen's Street in Castletown on 1 December 2013.

Ian Anderson, 45 and of Queen Street, Castletown denied a charge of murder at Douglas Court House in April last year.

The jury of eight women and four men was sworn in by Deemster Alistair Montgomerie ahead of the trial which is expected to last four weeks.

It is the second jury to be sworn in for this trial after the initial jury panel was discharged on 4 March.
