Jury discharged in Shaun Rossington murder trial
The jury has been discharged in the trial of seven people accused of murdering a man in Lincoln.
The body of Shaun Rossington, 21, was discovered on grassland close to Waitrose on Searby Road on 3 June. He had died of head injuries.
Two men and five teenagers - including a 14-year-old girl - all deny murder.
The hearing was halted for legal reasons which cannot be reported. A new jury new will be sworn in on Wednesday, and the trial will restart on Thursday.
The seven defendants are Nicholas Shelbourne, 27, of Edinburgh House, Laughton Way; Mark Jackson, 20, of Yarborough Road; two girls aged 17 and 14 and three boys - two aged 17 and another aged 16.
One of the 17-year-old boys has pleaded guilty to manslaughter on the basis of lack of intent, as well as perverting the course of the justice, while the other 17-year-old boy has admitted perverting the course of justice.
The trial was halted on the third day at Nottingham Crown Court.
