Paul Groves trial: Jury discharged over language issue
A murder trial was halted after it emerged a juror did not understand what was being said.
Paul Groves - who is accused of the murder of 39-year-old William Martindale in Ongar last September - is on trial at Chelmsford Crown Court.
But after the prosecution opened the case, it emerged one of the jurors - a woman of Oriental appearance - did not understand the evidence.
As a result, a new jury was sworn in and the trial restarted.
More than a hour of evidence had been heard before the issue was raised.
Mr Groves, 33, also denies a separate charge of wounding with intent.
The case continues.
