The jury in the trial of a man accused of murdering teenager Mariora Rostas is expected to begin deliberating on a verdict tomorrow morning after a six-week trial.

Mr Justice Patrick McCarthy has completed his charge to the jury, which began yesterday.

Alan Wilson of New Street Gardens in the city has pleaded not guilty to murdering Ms Rostas at Brabazon Street, The Coombe between 7 and 8 January 2008.

The 18-year-old Romanian girl went missing on 6 January 2008 after getting into a car while begging in Dublin city centre.

She had been in Ireland for just 18 days.

Her body was buried in a shallow grave in the Dublin /Wicklow Mountains where it was discovered four years later.

She had been shot four times in the head.
