The jury at the trial of a man accused of killing a woman found in her car boot in Hampshire has been sent home.

The body of Paula Poolton, 40, of Titchfield in Fareham, was found near Swanwick railway station on 28 October 2008, 11 days after she was killed.

Roger Kearney, 57, of Sarisbury Green near Southampton, denies her murder.

Winchester Crown Court heard how the pair were having an affair in the summer of 2008. Deliberations will resume at 1000 BST on Thursday.
