The jury in the trial of a 20-year-old man accused of murdering German student Thomas Heinrich has failed to reach a verdict.

Wesley Kelly from St Anthony's Road in Dublin was yesterday convicted of assaulting 23-year-old Robert Rinker in Rialto.

He denied murdering his 22-year-old friend Mr Heinrich on 1 December 2012.

Yesterday, Kelly's co-accused, a 17-year-old who cannot be named because of his age, was convicted of murdering Mr Heinrich and assaulting Mr Rinker.

However, after further deliberation today the jury failed to agree on a verdict on the murder charge against Kelly.

The prosecution had alleged Kelly was involved in a joint enterprise and had gone "looking for fight" with his co-accused.
