The jury in the retrial of a County Londonderry man accused of murdering a woman pregnant with his child has been sent home for the weekend.

Stephen Cahoon, 39, admits killing Jean Quigley at her home in Cornshell Fields in Derry on 26 July 2008, but denies murder.

Cahoon was arrested in Donegal shortly after the killing and opted to be tried at Dublin Central Criminal Court.

Counsel for the prosecution and defence have made their closing statements.

The jury is to reconvene on Monday.
