THE judge in the Denholme murder trial will continue his summing up today after yesterday’s proceedings were halted by an illness to a juror.

Trial judge, Mr Justice Goss, will therefore continue his third day of summing up the case, this morning at Bradford Crown Court.

Mohammed Feazan Ayaz, 20, of Duckworth Grove, Manningham, Bradford, died from a traumatic head injury after he was stripped naked, punched, slapped and kicked at unit 2 of Denholme Business Centre on June 30 and July 1 last year.

On trial denying murder are: Raheel Khan, 27, of no fixed address; Suleman Khan, 20, of Sandford Road, Bradford Moor; Robert Wainwright, 26, Mannville Terrace, Bradford city centre; Junaid Hussain, 28, of Silverhill Road, Bradford Moor and Stephen Queeney, 34, of Junction Row, Bolton Road.

Raheel Khan has admitted the manslaughter of Mr Ayaz.

Shaoib Shafiq, 20, of Gladstone Street, Bradford Moor, and a 17-year-old Bradford youth, who cannot be named for legal reasons because of his age, plead not guilty to assisting an offender.

The trial continues.
