The jury in the trial of two men accused of stabbing a 45-year-old man to death in Norfolk has retired to consider its verdict.

Andrew Cameron, of Blackpool, Lancashire, denies murdering Steven Murphy in Fakenham in October 2009.

Alexander Dewar, 24, also of Blackpool, denies the same charge.

Norwich Crown Court heard Mr Murphy's mother found his body with 16 stab wounds when she went to his home to take him clean washing on 1 October.

Mr Cameron and his 53-year-old father James, of Felixstowe, Suffolk, both deny conspiracy to cause grievous bodily harm to Mr Murphy between 20 May and 2 October last year.

The court heard James Cameron had got into a feud with Mr Murphy about a woman who lived in Felixstowe.
