A jury has retired to consider its verdict in the trial of two men accused of murdering a take-away driver in Denbighshire.

Gary Bland and his nephew James Siree deny attacking Gabor Sarkozi in Meliden near Prestatyn in October 2011.

Mold Crown Court has heard the prosecution say the evidence against the two men was overwhelming.

But the defence teams said there were too many unanswered questions in the case.

Hungarian national, Mr Sarkozi, who was a delivery driver for the Happy Garden chip shop, died from a series of injuries after being attacked near the village of Meliden.

The prosecution have claimed that the two defendants were responsible for that fatal attack.

The men, both from Rhyl, have denied any part in the incident.

In their evidence both Mr Siree and Mr Bland said they had been trying to help Mr Sarkozi after discovering him collapsed.

The case continues.
